Our Department has twelve clinical academic staff including eight full-time professoriate staff, two clinical professional consultants and two clinical lecturers. All of us are involved in both research and teaching activities. We also provide high-quality clinical services for babies, children and adolescents in the university-affiliated Prince of Wales Hospital. There are four general paediatric wards, one neonatal intensive unit, two special care baby units, one paediatric intensive care unit, and one Children’s Cancer Centre in this Hospital, with a total of 176 inpatient beds and cots. We have an annual admission of around 14,000 children, and all outpatient activities take place in the Li Ka Shing Specialist Clinic. Besides, our Department has three senior basic scientists holding the posts of assistant professor, research assistant professor and part-time senior research fellow. All of us will be actively involved in providing paediatric subspecialty services, conducting cutting-edge research, and offering undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the new Hong Kong Children’s Hospital that will open in October 2018.
