Academic Exchanges Between Peking University and the University of Hong Kong

  From June 3 to June 7, Peking University (PKU) and the University of Hong Kong (HKU) jointly held the 2024 Beijing-Hong Kong Student Exchange Seminar, which is supported by the University Student Exchange Program under the Exchange Program for Teachers and Students between Hong Kong, Macao, and Mainland China, also called the "Ten Thousand Talents Program" of the Ministry of Education. The event aims to strengthen the exchange between teachers and students, learn from each other's experiences, explore new ideas, promote innovation through exchanges, seek development through innovation, and facilitate the high-quality discipline construction of pharmaceutical sciences at both universities.


  On the morning of June 4th, faculty and students from HKU visited Peking University Health Science Center (PKUHSC) and an academic seminar was held in the lecture hall of the Science and Technology Building. More than 30 faculty and students from HKU and PKUHSC attended the meeting.


  Teachers from the two universities shared their experiences in undergraduate curriculum construction and reform in the afternoon. HKU also introduced Hong Kong's primary healthcare plan and emphasized the reform achievements of the "organ-systems-based curriculum" (OSBC) in undergraduate pharmaceutical education, the arrangement of continuous internships and practices, and the distinctive interdisciplinary professional education. Both sides had sufficient exchanges and discussions on education, teaching, and research. They hope to jointly build a platform for communication and cooperation between teachers and students of the two universities in scientific research and learning in the future.


  On the afternoon of the 4th, students from HKU, accompanied by volunteers from the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, toured around the medical campus, visited the University History Room, the Chinese Herb Medicine Room, and the State Key Laboratory Instrument Platform. They learned about the development history of PKU Medicine over the past century and the current status of pharmaceutical discipline construction, felt the campus atmosphere and culture, and experienced the inheritance of the spirit of Houdao (social commitment) of PKU Medicine and its responsibilities in the new era.


  This joint event not only strengthens the cooperation and exchange between PKU and HKU in the field of pharmaceutical sciences, but also provides a platform for teachers and students of the two schools to learn from each other and enhance their friendship. Through various forms of activities such as academic reports, laboratory visits, and cultural experiences, teachers and students from both universities have explored the cutting-edge dynamics and future development directions of pharmaceutical research so as to seek cooperation possibilities, laying a solid foundation for more academic exchanges and cooperation in the future. Both sides look forward to achieving more fruitful results in the field of pharmaceutical sciences and jointly promoting the high-quality development of the pharmaceutical discipline.
