The programme aims to train a new breed of healthcare administrators and nutritionists for the rapidly expanding healthcare industry. In order to match a shift of emphasis of the present healthcare system from treatment-oriented to prevention-focused in Hong Kong, the programme curriculum covers a wide range of health related areas, including nutrition, health science and healthcare administration & management, etc. Internship opportunities in healthcare companies / organizations will also be provided to students so as to enhance their practical experience and employability.
Graduates may hold administrative posts in Government Departments, public or private medical or healthcare institutions, or work as project officers in rehabilitation centres or wellness and nutrition business organisations. After gaining sufficient work experience, they may be promoted to management level.
With a fast increase in ageing population and a trend of expansion of service by many major hospitals, there is a huge demand for healthcare and nutritional science personnel and specialists. The industry not only provides many job positions to graduates of this programme, they can also have excellent upward mobility opportunities in their career.
This programme provides a solid foundation in academic competence and research capability for students aspiring for further studies. Graduates are eligible to enroll in various healthcare related professional/Master programmes, such as nursing, clinical nutritional science, dietician, public health, physiotherapy, etc.
Graduates are eligible to apply for membership of the Hong Kong Management Association and Associateship of the Hong Kong College of Health Services Executives, and membership of the Hong Kong Nutrition Association as nutritionists.
