HKU Student Wellness Self Assessment 2021

HKU, as the first Gold Level Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) campus in HK, has established the Exercise Referral Scheme that connects patients in need of exercise with qualified exercise specialists and health providers.

In response to The COVID-19 Pandemic, HKU has launched a series of support services to ensure physical and mental wellness among students. One of which is the Wellness Self Assessment, aiming to identify students in need of exercise and removing any exercise barriers.

By completing this short self assessment, each student will receive a *voucher for a FREE session with the Exercise Specialists from CSE, or use it as a *$200 voucher for any CSE exercise/sports programs.

Exercise Medical Referral Scheme

This Exercise Medical Referral Scheme aims to increase students' awareness of personal health and encourage active healthy lifestyles through exercise incentives, personal guidance, and referral support among HKU professionals.

Under this scheme, the physical activity level of those visiting the UHS clinic or the CEDARS counselling services are assessed as a vital sign. Students in need of more exercise opportunities could then be appropriately referred to the professional care and supervision they need.

Exercise is Medicine (EIM) Month

Exercise is Medicine on Campus is designed to engage students to improve physical fitness, health and wellness across campus. The initiative includes health assessments and knowledge sharing sessions throughout the year, as well as recruitment of student Health Ambassadors who will support in the EIM on Campus events.
