We are delighted to announce that Dr. Kendrick Co Shih, Clinical Assistant Professor, was awarded the 2021 Teaching Medal from the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong. Dr. Shih is the first from our young department to be selected as an awardee.
Dr. Shih currently serves as the HKUMed Director of Student Affairs and helps coordinate the faculty’s academic advising, student wellness and admission outreach programmes. He was also appointed the programme director of the MBBS Enrichment Year Programme. On a department level, Dr. Shih serves as the coordinator for undergraduate ophthalmology teaching. Last year, during the pandemic, Dr. Shih translated ophthalmic clinical skills teaching to the ‘webside’. The adaptation was described in detail in a recent publication in Medical Education, a leading journal in Education, Scientific Disciplines.
We wish Dr. Shih continued success in his efforts in teaching and learning!
