"Pharmacists can play a proactive role in public health and primary care. After studying in the MPH program at CUHK, I have expanded my mindset to analyze health issues with a more comprehensive and holistic approach. Understanding the influences of various determinants of health is critical to more effective services and policies at an upstream level in the health system.

Ms. Yiwen HUANG

Graduate of MPH (Full-time)

Research Officer, Communicable Diseases Health Service Delivery (COMDIS-HSD) research programme consortium, Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development, University of Leeds

“The MPH program has helped me lay a solid foundation in the concepts and general knowledge of public health. Through all the required and elective courses, I became familiar with the various disciplines within this field. Before I started this program, my knowledge on public health was only limited to basic epidemiology and statistics. After the one year of full time study, I have learned that public health was not simply equal to epidemiology; instead, it was a multi-disciplinary field that combined knowledge from biological, socio-economics, statistics, and political field. The most amazing part of public health was that for each discipline, research design is based on the methods I studied from the epidemiology and biostatistics courses. In addition, the capstone project not only taught me on how to conduct a real-life public health research, but I have also learned a lot of background knowledge regarding the specific topic during this process, which might give me some inspirations for further research on this same topic."


Ms. Eva LAM

Graduate of MPH

“With the MPH qualification, I successfully moved my career from a frontline pharmacist to a public health coordinator and was able to handle various global health projects. The course provided us with top quality academic staff, updated course materials, strong practicality and many professors are public health leaders from Hong Kong and overseas countries. Without the MPH, I would have never been able to gain such a meaningful task in my career with the required public health perspectives.”

Mr. Marcus NG

Graduate of MPH (Full-time)

Scientific Officer, Department of Health

“The MPH at the CUHK has served me well in bridging my passion to contemplate and apply acquired knowledge into actionable solutions to achieve optimal outcome without compromising rationality and ethics. I have gained perspectives in identifying the social determinants of health inequality which often translate into loopholes in the socio-political and legal systems that fail to secure the quality healthcare for the population. Having worked as a hospital administrator and a scientific officer, I understand that no public health policies can be made in a vacuum. In other words, sound scientific evidence coupled with well-grounded rule of law is bedrock of attaining societal health.”

Ms. Christy LAW

Graduate of MPH (Part-time)

“I pursued the MPH with an interest to gain perspective of public health issues around us and prepare myself for future career development.

If you are looking for new impacts in your life and career, take this challenge now."
