3 HD in Healthcare & Health Plan Administration 醫護與健保行政高級文憑

課程目標及特點

香港人口急速老化,對公營或私營之醫護需求越見增多,相關的醫療和健康保險行業亦有持續增長之趨勢。客觀數據顯示,市場一方面對醫護和健保行業之支援人員大量渴求,另一方面卻缺乏配套培訓。本課程正填補這空間,針對後勤及行政人員的訓練,為同學提供一個多元基礎課程,結合健康科學、社會科學、財務規劃以至商業法律等知識,增加同學在相關市場之競爭力。

實習工作

所有修讀此高級文憑的學生都必須在第二個學年的最後一個學期完成192小時之實習。學生將獲編配到不同的實習機構,包括醫護組織或保險公司,參與行政或後勤工作(即前綫銷售以外之崗位,如醫療核保),以求做到學以致用。表現好的同學更能藉此建立行内網絡,與職場順利接軌。

專業資格

本課程其中兩科(「商業法(保險專業)」和「保險」)内容與保險中介人資格考試(IIQE)之第一和第三部份相若。學院鼓勵並協助安排有興趣的同學報考,讓他們在進入職場前取得專業資格,進一步自我增值。

就業前景

本課程適合有志投身醫療保健和健康保險行業的同學修讀。同學修畢課程以後,一方面會對健康科學和基本病理詞彙有初階認識;另一方面,本課程提供主流醫護課程缺乏之社會科學、財務規劃以至商業法律的訓練。同學結合這兩方面的知識,正能填補市場上對業内行政和後勤人才之需求。這類崗位不單講求行政能力,更要求員工對病理有基本認知,以便有效處理病人轉介或醫療事故(如醫保索償)等支援性工作。

畢業同學可投身之界別甚廣,包括公營或私營醫護組織和相關行業(醫院、診所、保健中心、體檢中心、藥廠等)之行政支援崗位。最不能忽視但又往往被遺忘了的是保險業之後勤職務。這類非營銷的後勤崗位(如理賠和核保)其實極度渴求人才,這類工作要求員工對健康科學有基本認識,市場上之人才卻極爲短缺。在需求大但供應少的情況下,這類工作的就業前景頗佳,相對同等學歷和職齡之行政人員來説,收入回報亦相對理想,是畢業生可選擇之就業出路。

特別入學資格

申請人如在香港中學文憑考試修讀生物或組合科學科(生物),及/或於數學科考獲第二級或以上成績,將獲優先考慮。

  • 現就職於醫療服務

兩年前考文憑試成績不理想,於是決定報讀港大附屬學院。由於本身對醫療行業有興趣,碰巧「醫護及健保行政」高級文憑課程又剛推出,所以便報讀,又因這決定,才有幸踏入醫療行業。兩年間講師們耐心教導,他們優秀的教學方式,使我更用心學習。同學之間會互相鼓勵及交流,學習過程並不孤單,更營造良好的學習氣氛。課程提供講座及實習機會,令我不只在知識上進步,實踐上亦有增益。 現在我已正式受聘在診所全職工作,踏入醫療行業第一步。全因入讀這科,我才可以找到前路。

Studying Healthcare and Health Plan Administration at HKUSPACE has exposed me to a broader spectrum of healthcare issues, ranging from health planning to the structure of the medical system in Hong Kong and other countries. As the number of the aging population has rocketed, the healthcare demand for elderly service and organizations is increasing. This Programme enriches my health sciences knowledge, while helping me understand the factors behind the demand and supply for elderly services. All these help students think more thoroughly about their interests and future decisions. During our internship, students were assigned to different community centres or clinics, where they experienced, or observed first-hand, the routine tasks and duties of a community nurse or counsellor. This was a brand-new experience for most students. I really appreciate the college for giving me a second chance to achieve my goal to study in the university.

Studying Healthcare & Health Plan Administration at HKUSPACE has fostered my knowledge of the healthcare sector. The teachers here are welcoming, which allows me to ask questions and learn in a comfortable atmosphere. The Programme courses are diverse, interesting, and useful. They broaden my horizons on society and the causes and impacts of diseases in broader historical and comparative contexts. There are also sociology and positive psychology courses, and I have learnt a lot about the different healthcare delivery and financing systems from my coursework assignments. In addition, my internship provided a precious opportunity for me to understand my potential and strength. I participated in a community centre and earned health promotion experiences, which are advantageous for my future career. I will enter the university soon and I thank HKU SPACE for offering me the opportunity!
