Student Learning Experience and Surveys

Perception by LKS Faculty of Medicine Graduates on their University Education


The project aims to find out how well the LKS Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong has achieved its educational aims at the institution and at the faculty levels, by surveying our graduates in the health professions how well they perceived their learning needs had been fulfilled by the old (before 1997) and the new (post – 1997) curricula. The targeted graduates include those from the two undergraduate programmes: Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), and Bachelor of Nursing (BNurs). The results of the survey will be used to guide the expansion of the respective programme associated with the 4-Year Undergraduate Curriculum Reform, so that the institution- and faculty-level educational aims can be better matched after the curriculum expansion.

Although the targets of the survey are the graduates of the LKS Faculty of Medicine, the scope of the project is the University of Hong Kong as a whole. Through the Working Group on Alumni and Employers Surveys, consisting of members from different Faculties and the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, the experiences and products at all stages of this project will be disseminated to other faculties, thus benefiting the university as a whole.
