Class Topic


Brief introduction to the course

The HKU MBBS II course “Exercise and Health” aims to provide MBBS students with a broad understanding of the physiological response and adaptation to exercise/physical activity and the important role of exercise in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of major chronic diseases. By applying the same standards of critical analysis and evidence-based medicine given to pharmacotherapy to the evidence underpinning exercise, and through the acquisition of knowledge and skills in health-related physical fitness assessment, pre-exercise screening, and exercise prescription, MBBS students will become more confident, competent, and enthusiastic about provide physical activity or even prescribe exercise/physical activity for health.
