Student’s

Student’s comments“Nowadays, GPs can attend various kinds of CME lectures easily in different locations of HK free of charge.However, most of the CME lectures focus too much on pharmacological treatment, while neglecting the importanceof non-pharmacological treatment in many clinical conditions like “fall prevention” (covered in geriatrics module)or the importance of arriving at differential diagnoses. (“DDx of chest pain” covered in cardiology modules).What’s more, the topics of many CME lectures are commonly hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia, diabetes,etc, while many important topics like “interpretation of blood test results” or “reading CXR, ECG” are usually notcovered in CME lectures but are covered in this diploma course.Over the recent few years, there has been a marked increase in the number of patients with severe or complicatedchronic diseases consulting GPs in HK, partly because of the long waiting list of SOPDs of HA, and partly becausemany pharmaceutical companies have begun to promote expensive medications to GPs. Gone are the days whenGPs only need to be equipped with the ability to see patients with URTI or GE. This diploma course can help usto address such needs.I highly recommend this course to all GPs.”Dr Chan Hoi Chung Samuel“This refresher diploma course certainly equipped me withthe state-of-art knowledge in internal medicine. It provides acomprehensive package comprising lectures, workshops, andclinical attachments for coping with my daily needs in generalpractice, especially in the arena of advances in treatmentmodalities. Workshops were particularly useful as the casessimulated common problems facing family physicians andgeneral practitioners that they are sometimes not confident todeal with. Clinical attachments served as a demonstration ofa link between primary care and specialist care through nicelychosen selection of teaching cases. After taking this course, I ammore competent in dealing with more complex cases in internalmedicine, particularly in cases where patients have been followedup by their specialists and come to seek for other opinions andinformation regarding their conditions and treatment modalities.“This post-graduate diploma course consolidatesmy core concepts in internal medicine, and itprovides me with up-to-date insights in themanagement issues on various diseases. Don’tmiss this course if you want to update yourdiagnostic and therapeutic skills in internalmedicine!”Dr Lee Kin WaiI have no hesitation in recommending this diploma course toall family physicians and general practitioners. I am sure itwill empower you to practise more confidently with skills andknowledge acquired in this course.”Dr Wu Chun Yu“I am a Family Physician working under HA. As one of thesecond batches of students of the postgraduate diploma inDiagnosis and Therapeutics in Internal Medicine, the mostremarkable aspect of the programme was the dedicationto primary care physicians. The curriculum adheredclosely to the aims of updating diagnosis and treatmentof commonly encountered problems in primary care. Selfselected clinical attachments were very constructive andhelped me understand what my patients would expectin secondary or tertiary health care. One of the mostmemorable visits included the fully equipped sleep studylaboratory and the geriatric day care hospital. My tutorwas very supportive and gave me much help in writing upmy dissertation.”Dr Judy Cheng“The course has helped me to catchup with the latest updates in clinicalmedicine and is supplemented withpractical case illustrations which wererelevant to my daily practice.”Dr Frances Yu“I strongly recommend the course tomy colleagues as it’s really practiseoriented, and all the arrangement ofthe course is extremely excellent!”Dr Billy Chiu• • • 8 • • •
