香港大學(港大)牙醫學院於明年(2022年)成立40周年。學院於短短40年間,發展成為世界級的牙醫學府,今天的成就有賴優秀的教職員、學生、校友和傑出領導者的共同努力,以及菲臘牙科醫院的全力支持。
牙醫學院於11月28日(星期日)在港大何鴻燊體育中心舉行開幕禮暨足球友誼賽,為慶祝40周年的活動揭開序幕。牙醫管理委員會主席李健民醫生擔任榮譽嘉賓。其他嘉賓包括立法會議員(醫學界)陳沛然醫生、香港牙科醫學院主席黃耀佳醫生、牙醫學院院長傅立明教授、助理院長(對外事務)梁耀殷醫生,以及港大協理副校長(發展及校友事務)徐詠璇女士。
李健民醫生致開幕辭時說,牙科訓練猶如運動訓練,運動員應對難題、處理壓力和富毅力的特質,都是牙醫具備的條件。「牙醫具備這些能力,有助他們在事業上取得成就、貢獻社會,照顧更多的病人,達至牙醫專業的抱負和目標,就如運動員向著終點線衝刺一樣。」李醫生說。
主禮嘉賓在開幕禮中踢起巨型吹氣足球,標誌著慶祝40周年的連串活動開展。之後舉行足球友誼賽,由老師聯同校友,與學生隊對壘。最後由李健民醫生頒發獎杯給勝出的學生隊,活動在歡呼聲中圓滿結束。
自1982年成立以來,香港大學牙醫學院是全港唯一一所提供本科及碩士課程的牙科學府。踏入40周年,學院將繼續邁步向前,致力實踐其使命:「成為口腔衛生科學、牙科教育和專業護理的領導者,通過創新、跨學科和國際化的交流,為全球的醫學科研帶來正面的影響。」
