The Auxiliary Medical Service (AMS) and Saint Francis University (SFU) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) today (June 22) to officially launch a series of academic collaborations and programmes regarding youth nurturing and development. The co-operation will allow youths to put their knowledge into practice and serve the community through education and activities such as medical and healthcare training, volunteer service, and life planning that promote a diversified development path, as well as academic collaborations which include research, sharing of information and data, and seminars.

Witnessed by the Under Secretary for Security, Mr Michael Cheuk, and the Vice-Chairperson of SFU's Council, Reverend Joseph Yim, the MOU was signed by the Chief Staff Officer of the AMS, Mr Wong Ying-keung, and the Acting President of SFU, Professor Lo Tit-wing.

Addressing the ceremony, Mr Cheuk expressed his hope that the AMS and SFU will further foster collaboration in different academic aspects. By enriching members’ knowledge in the healthcare profession and raising their interest to join the public health sector in the future, the AMS Cadet Corps will become a cradle to nurture more healthcare professionals with quality.

Reverend Yim said he hoped that through the partnership between the two parties, young people will have more opportunities to access information about different professional industries and explore various possibilities. He also encouraged students from different backgrounds to continuously equip themselves to join professional industries in the future, realise better opportunities for upward mobility, and use their talent to contribute to society and the country.
