Orthopaedic Students

 

Establishment of Orthopaedic Student Group (OSG)


The Orthopaedic Student Group (OSG) was established in 2018 under the stewardship of Professor Patrick SH Yung, as a chapter of the Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Its membership is comprised of medical students from all academic years from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and The University of Hong Kong. The purpose of the Student Group is to provide a platform for all medical students with an interest in the field of Orthopaedics to gain an insight into the specialty.

Members of the OSG have an opportunity to participate in the activities organized by the Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons, as well as some selected activities organized by the Hong Kong Orthopaedic Association. Members are invited to observe the activity of boards and committees and comment where appropriate.


Objectives of the OSG


1. To nurture medical students and and develop an interest in Orthopaedics, for the clinical management of Orthopaedic conditions and research.
2. To act as a platform for communication between medical students and the Academy, and a conduit for the views of medical students to be represented to the Council.
3. To promote medical students engagement and involvement in the Academy.
