Student Message

It has been a privilege to receive my Radiography (Medical Imaging) education at the HTI, where students obtain a profound knowledge base. The well-structured clinical placement curriculum has given me an authentic taste of working as a true diagnostic radiographer. Not only did I become more knowledgeable, but I also have a clearer understanding of my future development within this profession.


I am particularly thankful that the HTI has opened many doors for me throughout the past four years. In my first year, I was honoured to take part in an academic exchange program in Taiwan to visit local hospitals. I was encouraged to become an Executive Committee Member of the Student Ambassador of Radiography, as well as a peer tutor for medical imaging and clinical skills modules, which laid the foundation for the development of my character. The Department has continuously helped me to achieve my potential by providing me with many prestigious scholarships and award applications. With such opportunities, I have no doubt that this is a perfect place for students to become strongminded and all-rounded professionals.

CHAN Chun Wai, Jan

The Department of Health Technology and Informatics (HTI) has offered me unreserved support throughout the 4-year Radiography programme (specialism in Radiation Therapy). The comprehensive curriculum encompasses a broad spectrum of foundation knowledge (e.g. Human Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Physics, etc.), clinical skills and professional practices in Radiation Therapy. This programme has equipped me with ample evidence-based knowledge of Radiation Therapy and its latest and future developments. The excellent mentoring and customised guidance from the high-calibre teaching team have facilitated me in transforming my academic knowledge into professional practical know-how during my clinical placement since year 2. Most importantly, I have become holistically prepared to deliver the best possible treatment and care for each patient in the future. My mentors have provided me with abundant opportunities to develop my research skills and interests, helping me to complete my first-ever academic publication related to radiotherapy for paediatric cancer patients in an international journal during my final year. Finally, I am wholeheartedly grateful for the unparalleled support of the Department of HTI.
