The Ph.D. Program in School of Pharmacy is a top destination for analytical brains willing to uncover new knowledge in the field of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Students can select their specialization from a range of streams such as Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Clinical Pharmacy, Pharmaceutics and Pharmacology. In particular, students learn to employ a rational structure-based approach for the design and synthesis of small molecule cancer therapeutics.
School of Nursing offers Master of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) to prepare professional nurses with advanced knowledge to meet the health needs of people globally. With a strong mission to engage in interdisciplinary and industrial/academic collaboration in areas encompassing culture, society, and ecology, we develop an innovative, comprehensive, and extensive curriculum.
Ph.D. students enrolling to the Global Health and Health Security program (GHHS) can choose their research advisors across the TMU campus with expertise ranging from medicine, public health, health management, law, environmental health, data science, big data, and international health security. Research priorities of the program are twofold: infectious disease control and impact of global policy on chronic disease.
The Master’s program in School of Nutrition and Health Sciences was established in 1995. Our mission is to train our students to integrate theoretical and practical skills and knowledge into new exploration in the modern era of nutrition from bench to bed and from data to policy and beyond. We have aggressively expanded international collaboration in teaching and research with the world’s top universities, to provide better learning environment and opportunity for our students toward globalization.
This Master’s program aims to cultivate research talents with basic knowledge and learning attitudes in cancer biology and drug research. Our program emphasizes the originality and independent thinking, problem-solving techniques, empirical medical research capabilities, international vision and communication skills, cross-domain integration of pharmaceutical research and development of technology, as well as the clinical translation skills, etc.
The International Ph.D. Program in Medicine (IGPM) recruited its first batch of students in 2016. Supported by over 300 faculty members in the College of Medicine, IGPM students have access to a wide variety of knowledge and expertise when deciding their advisory committee.
At the Graduate Institute of Mind, Brain and Consciousness (GIMBC) we investigate the levels and contents of consciousness, along with the cognitive mechanisms that modulate them.
The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) programme is delivered over four years and emphasises the acquisition and development of wide-ranging legal and intellectual skills. Learning and teaching are interactive and aligned with intended learning outcomes. Students are trained to apply laws and legal principles to solve real-life problems. The LLB programme provides a firm foundation for a career in law and law-related fields, public service and post-graduate studies in Hong Kong and overseas.
The International School of Medicine department’s entire program is in English. In the preparatory class, the students reach the English language proficiency required for professional, academic and societal issues. Afterwards, they start the medical education program, which provides horizontal integration among basic sciences as well as vertical integration between basic sciences and clinical sciences in the preclinical period.
The first-year courses comprise lectures and laboratory, and preclinical activities in basic sciences, dental anatomy, occlusion, and dental materials. In the second year, students are expected to develop additional preclinical skills, learn how basic science principles are applied to clinical settings, and get involved in clinical applications. Students who complete the first two years are awarded a basic medical sciences diploma.
