The practicum experience at the Strategy and Planning (S&P) Department of the Hospital Authority Head Office has enabled me to integrate what I have learnt from the MPH Programme and apply the knowledge to the public health practice. Reflecting on the overall experience, my communication skills and thinking skills have been strengthened through attending meetings with the senior management and engaging in their discussion. I was also given opportunities to have hands-on experience on developing evaluation frameworks for assessing Clinical Services Plans and proposing facility design guidelines, which consolidated my knowledge of strategy planning, quality assurance and change management techniques. The planning, analytical and organisational skills acquired are highly transferable to my academic studies and future career.
