He is also very interested in medical education and in particular scholarship of teaching. He takes great effort to help his students learn which is his main emphasis, rather than how much he teaches. His Faculty Teaching Award in 2001 and the prestigious University Teaching Fellowship in 2003 were recognitions of his teaching achievements.
He also believes medical education must be continued into postgraduate years. He has therefore initiated and developed some of the most successful postgraduate academic courses in Hong Kong over the past few years.
His research interest, in addition to medical education research, is broad-based, reflecting the diversity of clinical activities that occur in primary care setting. He is particularly interested in applying both qualitative and quantitative methods in his research work in order to obtain the data which may not otherwise be available by using just one of the methodologies alone. He is a recipient of the Hong Kong College of Family Physicians' Research Award on three separate occasions, including the Inaugural Award.
