CUHK Sports Medicine Team

Formed in 1983, CUHK Sports Medicine Team is the pioneer in the field of Sports Medicine and Health Sciences. Through the years, our team has grown and developed under the Mission and Vision of “to promote prevention and provide treatments of sports injuries”. Our team has developed from a few clinical staff to around 20 colleagues including clinical and teaching staff, research staff and administrative staff now.


Our research program focuses on prevention and treatments for sports injuries. Apart from clinical & applied research for management of sport injuries, we chiefly devote to translational research on tendon, ACL and cartilage injuries.


Besides, promoting “Sports Medicine in Community” is another keystone of ours. We aim not only to provide advanced academic training to health care and sports professionals, but also promote sports injury prevention and a positive attitude towards sports in the community.
