[1] LMSH was the qualification awarded to graduates of the Hong Kong College of Medicine for Chinese HKCMC (1887-1912). Holders of LMSH were not authorized to practice as private practitioners until July 8, 1908[a]. From that day on they were permitted to practice as "exempted persons", but not to be listed in the Medical Register.
[a] There were hospital appointments, more particularly at missionary or charitable hospitals, prior to 1908. For instance, Kwan King-leung 關景良, LMSH 1893, was permitted to practice at the Alice Memorial Hospital 1893.
