Discussion Forum on Postgraduate Courses offered in the School of Biomedical Sciences

The Graduate Division of Biomedical Sciences organized a discussion forum on postgraduate courses on 19 March 2012 in Lo Kwee-Seong Integrated Biomedical Sciences Building.

The objective of the forum was to collect inputs and suggestions on the proposal put forward by the Sub-committee on Postgraduate Curriculum Review.  The proposal suggested re-structuring of our existing postgraduate courses with a view to enhancing the academic quality and timeliness of our postgraduate education and so the versatility of our postgraduate students in meeting the many new challenges as a result of the rapid advancement in bio-technology and information expansion in biomedical sciences.  During the forum, participants were actively involved in the discussion and shared many useful insights and comments with the Sub-committee.  After incorporating suggestions collected in the forum, the proposal would be finalized and submitted to the appropriate parties in the University for approval in April 2012 and thereafter.
