Dr Enoch Chan is an Assistant Lecturer / Senior E-learning Instructor at the School of Clinical Medicine, University of Hong Kong, where he develops digital learning resources, provides pedagogical support and teaches Physiology for multiple undergraduate programmes (Medicine, Nursing, Chinese Medicine and Pharmacy) at HKUMed. He has expertise in multiple disciplines including Biomedical Sciences, Biomedical Education and Educational Technology. He completed his PhD in Pathology at UNSW Sydney through research on the role of myeloperoxidase and heparanase in the pathogenesis of vascular diseases. During his PhD candidature, he began teaching Biochemistry and Pathology for undergraduate Biological / Medical Science students at UNSW Sydney. Afterwards, he began his career in Medical Education as a Biomedical Educational Developer at the Office of Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education), UNSW Sydney. In 2019, He joined HKUMed as an E-learning Instructor. Dr Chan also completed a PgCert in Digital Education (with distinction) at University of Edinburgh, and he is a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (Advance HE, UK).
