Biography
Dr. Weng-Yee Chin (Weng) is a graduate of the University of Western Australia and a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. She worked as a private General Practitioner in Sydney prior to relocating to Hong Kong in 2005. She initially joined the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Hong Kong as an honorary Family Medicine teacher in 2006, and now holds joint appointments with the Department of Family Medicine and Primary Care and the Institute of Medical and Health Sciences Education where she is primarily involved in undergraduate Family Medicine teaching, curriculum development and quality assurance of the undergraduate medical curriculum.
 
Her main research focus has been on mental health and medical education. She is particularly interested in identifying ways for doctors to better address patients with common psychological problems, and in examining ways to enhance doctors’ and student’s attitudes towards providing mental health care.
 
In the last three years, Weng has been keen to help build the research capacity of family doctors in Hong Kong. She established a territory-wide mental health practice- based research network currently involving 60 family doctors, and has been delivering primary care research skills workshops and mentoring young family physicians to conduct research in primary care.
 
She is also currently involved in evaluating the quality of care of multi-disciplinary primary care clinic, focusing on delivery of care by nurse and allied healthcare workers.
 
In 2013, she was awarded the HKU Faculty of Medicine’s Faculty Teaching Medal, the Faculty’s highest award for teaching.
