Professor Lam, Tai Pong 林大邦
Tai Pong had a dream: a dream that every citizen in the world has access to a well trained family doctor whenever s/he needs to. This is what drives him in his work because there is still a relative shortage of qualified family doctors in most communities. His editorship (currently with Asia Pacific Family Medicine and formerly with The Hong Kong Practitioner ) has been his major effort towards this end.
He is also very interested in medical education and in particular scholarship of teaching. He takes great effort to help his students learn which is his main emphasis, rather than how much he teaches. His Faculty Teaching Award in 2001 and the prestigious University Teaching Fellowship in 2003 were recognitions of his teaching achievements.
He also believes medical education must be continued into postgraduate years. He has therefore initiated and developed some of the most successful postgraduate academic courses in Hong Kong over the past few years.
