Our unit is actively involved in both clinical and translational research, in particular uro-oncology, urolithiasis and men’s health problems. We are also committed in providing educational service to both health care professionals and the general public.

With a generous donation from the S.H. Ho Foundation, the S.H. Ho Urology Centre at the Department of Surgery opened on 8 November 2013.

The key mission of the centre is to promote urological education for physicians and the public education in Hong Kong and the region, as well as basic and clinical research, in particular, the establishment of local Chinese experience and data. Among all urological diseases, prostate cancer will be one of the centre's focus research areas.

CLINICAL  FELLOWSHIP  PROGRAMME

Advanced Endourology and Laparoscopic Surgery Fellowship

The urologic advanced endourology fellowship is in general 6 months in length, taking place in Prince of Wales Hospital, Hong Kong. The clinical goals of the fellowship include a high level understanding of both benign and oncological urology diseases, as well as surgical skills which include proper decision making and technical ability. Clinical fellows would have exposure in ward duties, clinic consultations and academic meetings. Hands-on surgical exposure includes endourological procedures, as well as basic and advanced laparoscopic procedures. Robotic surgery is available in our centre. Console experience would depend on the qualification of individual fellow.

Additionally, the research component is often required with the goal of sparking interest in an academic career and to teach basic research skills. Completion of a project is expected at the end of the fellowship. Area and discipline of academic research can be further discussed upon the commencement of the fellowship programme.
