CCE and FHS jointly organized and launched a course of 2-hour “Stem Cells: the Seeds of Life, Health, and Beauty” on 10 December. The students are the health professionals, including pharmacists, nurses, physiotherapists, dentists and occupational therapists. The course was approved by Conselho dos Profissionais de Saúde.
The course was taught by Prof. Ren-He XU, who is Associate Dean and Distinguished Professor of FHS. After the course, the students knew basic knowledge of stem cells, research milestones, current challenges, ethical issues and clinical application prospects. In order to meet the working schedule of the health professionals, the course was conducted in both face-to-face and online teaching. The course had been successfully completed with great recognition and positive feedbacks. The students, who attended the entire course, will be awarded a testimonial jointly issued by CCE and FHS.
Starting from 1 October 2023, the health professionals must obtain the credits required by participating in CPD activity within the license cycle. The credits obtained in each cycle can only be applied for the immediate renewal or re-issuance for the license. During the transition period, the credits obtained from 1 October 2021 to 30 September 2023 can be included in the immediate license cycle.
