General Medicine research
We conduct a wide range of research projects from clinical trials, quality improvement projects, observational studies to clinical case reports, based on our patients’ needs and clinicians’ interests and expertise.
Our research projects are guided by our passion to innovate and improve healthcare systems, to deliver practical, pragmatic and holistic clinical care for our patients, and to promote acquisition of practical research skills, through a multidisciplinary collaborative approach with various internal and external partners. Our patients are the inspiration behind our research activities.
