The Surgery programme at The Chinese University of Hong Kong is research-oriented. Students will have the opportunity to participate in international conference during the course of study.


The department

The Department of Surgery has built itself on a culture of academic research. The Department built its reputation on minimally invasive therapies. We pioneered laparoscopic, thoraco-scopic surgery and endoscopic treatment of GI conditions. Our clinical trials appear in New Journal of Medicine, Lancet, Chest, Gastroenterology and Annals of Surgery. Our earlier research led to dramatic decrease in peptic ulcer disease and its complications and the demise of acid reduction surgery.

Each student of the Surgery programme at The Chinese University of Hong Kong will be required to deliver seminar, submit a written research thesis and pass an oral examination for graduation.
