Outstanding Alumni Award of HTI
Outstanding Alumni Award of HTI
The Department of Health Technology and Informatics (HTI) was established on 1 September 2005. HTI brings the disciplines of Medical Laboratory Science and Radiography together in one department for the first time. However, each is well established at PolyU. Medical Laboratory Science at PolyU began in 1978 (as Biomedical Science) and Radiography was launched in 1978. The programmes offered in these two disciplines are part of a continually growing suite of sub-degree, undergraduate and postgraduate level programmes that have been offered over the past 43 years within the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences at PolyU. These programmes are designed to meet community and professional needs, and the programmes offered by HTI are in many ways unique in Hong Kong. Furthermore, all our programmes are accredited by the respective professional organizations.
Radiography and Medical Laboratory Science are integral facets of modern medicine and healthcare. We believe the coming together of these two disciplines will bring tremendous opportunity for synergistic advancements in these fields. The Department aims to make significant contributions to our global and local community through such advancements in education, research, and professional services.
The Outstanding Alumni Award of PolyU Department of Health Technology and Informatics aims to give public recognition to the outstanding graduates for their professional achievements and significant contributions to the community and their alma mater.
