Passing the HKMLE: working in HK I 17.03.2018

     On Saturday 17th March, 2018, over 70 medical students across the UK attended our annual HKMLE talk. This year it was hosted in Guy’s Hospital Tower Lecture Theatre, in collaboration with AMSA-UK. It ran smoothly and was very well received. Having studied medicine in the UK and worked in both Hong Kong as well without being able to speak fluent cantonese, Dr. Nikki Lee could share her unique personal experience of taking the HKMLE, and gave us a realistic and detailed account about her internship year in Hong Kong, comparing it to working in the UK. We also live streamed the event on Facebook for anyone who are interested but could not make it! Click here for more photos
