Programme Feature

This programme aims to nurture students with knowledge and practical skills in both healthcare and rehabilitation services. It integrates the concepts of health restoration, rehabilitative health and preventive health, and prepares students to be competent and responsive to the society by serving people of all ages, at different functional levels and in different healthcare settings.

 

This programme is designed with an emphasis on application of learning, which not only delivers theoretical knowledge and practical skills, but also provides flexibility for students to gain workplace experience in practicum if they want to further consolidate their knowledge into real-life practice. The integration of theoretical knowledge, laboratory practice and workplace experience will thus better prepare students for the employment and further studies.
