“Class Acts” CUHK Online Talk SeriesCUHK Dr. Jeremy Teoh Gives the Last Talk
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) organised the “Class Acts” CUHK Online Talk Series. It has helped students in ongoing learning at home and self-improvement by acquiring knowledge in different areas during the pandemic. In the last talk today (11 May) broadcasted on YouTube and the CUTV website, Dr. Jeremy Teoh from the Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine spoke on the topic “What I Have Learnt as a Surgeon”. The talk was free of charge and gave many CUHK students, staff members, alumni and members of the public, both local and overseas, an understanding of the sweet and sour moments in Dr. Teoh’s journey in practicing medicine. It also marked the successful conclusion of the eight talks in the series.
Holding a scalpel in an operating theatre, surgeons often have to stay focused for up to 30 unbroken hours with no time to eat, drink and go to the toilet. It is all because every second counts in saving lives. With being a doctor as his dream when he was very young, Dr. Teoh talked to the viewers about his personal experience, the struggles he has had to face and what he has learnt as a surgeon. He also responded to questions previously submitted by the viewers.
