The Faculty of Medicine will launch Asia's first elite MB ChB programme—the Global Physician-Leadership Stream (GPS) in fall. The programme aims at training medical students who exhibit qualities that can be cultivated to take up leadership roles in medical and health sciences, including clinical service, health policy, medical education, and cutting-edge research. Students admitted could have their internship at international health care units such as WHO to enhance their global perspective. They could pursue their graduate studies at top overseas institutions such as Oxford and Cambridge.

Among the medical students admitted this year, a total of 22 top candidates from the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations have been selected for this unique programme.

As the Global Physician-Leadership Stream is intellectually demanding, one of the criteria for admission is academic merit. From the HKDSE applicants, one student with seven subjects at Level 5**, and two students with six subjects at Level 5** were selected; from the IB applicants, three students scoring the full mark of 45, and 10 students with 44 were chosen. Equipped with a large reservoir of leaders and researchers, the Faculty is dedicated to educating and nurturing global stream students.
