CHIU Ka Tsun, Edmond (Year Four Student）
My programme within the Department of Biomedical Engineering at PolyU has paved a path for me into the healthcare service industry. The programme’s focus on Prosthetics and Orthotics is unique in Hong Kong. Using knowledge of biomechanics,material science and pathologies, this programme nurtures students to become professional clinicians and serve the public by providing high-quality healthcare services. This summer, I had a two-month clinical attachment in the Department of Prosthetics and Orthotics at Tuen Mun Hospital, which allowed me to acquire more bedside clinical experience and learn about the real-life workings of the industry and the local healthcare system. This experience has shaped my perspective of the local healthcare servicing field and has better equipped me for my future career.
PolyU emphasises the all-round development of its students. In addition to striving for academic excellence, I have been able to explore and stretch my potential at PolyU by being selected for the university’s men’s volleyball team. PolyU has a well-established sports department, providing high-quality training and support to aid student athletes to perform well in both local inter-collegiate and international competitions. Last year, the men’s volleyball team received the gold medal in the University Sports Federation of Hong Kong competition, and PolyU won the overall inter-collegiate championship.
