Prof. Wing-tak Wong, Deputy President and Provost of PolyU, met with Prof. Hector Tsang (Cally Kwong Mei Wan Professor in Psychosocial Health, Chair Professor of Rehabilitation Sciences and Head of RS), RS faculty members and year-one high-flyer students on 26 March 2021. During the meeting, the students explained why they determined to study physiotherapy (PT) or occupational therapy (OT) programmes at PolyU as well as their fruitful university life. Also, Prof. Wong and the attendees engaged in a dialogue on various topics, such as online teaching, teaching and learning support, and university life. The meeting ended with Prof. Wong’s sharing of the tips on study-life balance.
The purpose of the High Flyer Mentorship Programme is to offer student mentees invaluable opportunities to gather, interact and connect with RS distinguished alumni in the rehabilitation sector. The alumni mentors will share their thoughts on learning, pursuit of further studies, personal and career development with the year-one high-flyers. The programme helps to strengthen students’ sense of belonging to RS and PolyU. It also encourages them to take pride in studying PT and OT, and contribute to society with their expertise upon graduation.
