AFTEC & Medical Humanities Programme
AFTEC is a longstanding teaching partner of the Medical Humanities Programme. As part of their 15th anniversary celebration, an exhibition was staged at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre from Dec 10-20, 2022. It featured each of the 10 prize-winning creative works created by first year medical students over the past ten years, from 2012-13 to 2021-22.
The Medical Humanities (MH) curriculum at the LKS Faculty of Medicine is a welcoming space for the generation of new inquiries and reflections to help students understand illness and health in the wider context of the lives of people. The MH curriculum draws on the humanities, the arts and the social sciences, whose approaches value observation, perspective-taking, reflection, tolerance of uncertainty and individual context. These bring insight into who we are as human beings who suffer, heal, and have responsibilities to each other and who struggle with the complexities and ambiguities of issues inherent in medical care and practice. These creative works are examples of the first-year capstone project in which medical students demonstrate critical engagement with these issues.
