Licentiate in Medicine and Surgery of Hong Kong

updated March 14, 2014.

Opened in 1887, the Hong Kong College of Medicine for Chinese was absorbed into the University of Hong Kong in 1912, thereby ending its historical role as Hong Kong's first medical school as well as post-secondary education institute. Students who joined the College prior to March 1910 were entitled to continue their studies at HKU and upon passing the necessary examinations received LMSHK (Licentiate in Medicine and Surgery of Hong Kong) certificates issued by HKU, on behalf of the College. The lasts were awarded in 1915. During the 25 years of its existence, the College had admitted 128 students, resulting in 51 licentiates. [I was able to identify 43 of them and look forward to finding the remaining eight (3/14/2014).]

Chan Siu-pak
Diehard Follower Who Quitted School

Chan Siu-pak 陳少白 (b.1869 Kong-Moon (Jiangmen), Canton 廣東省江門市 - d.1934 Peking) was the first student to matriculate at the Canton Christian College 格致書院 (a Christian school founded by American evangelists Andrew P. Happer and Benjamin C. Henry, which was the forerunner of Lingnan University 嶺南大學). He was introduced to Sun Yat-sen by Au Fung-chi 區鳳墀 (father-in-law of Wan Tun-mo 尹端模); the two became the closest of friends instantaneously. At Sun's recommendation, Chan matriculated at HKCMC in January 1890, but quitted school two years later upon Sun's graduation from the medical college in order to stay close to the young visionary and soon to be revolutionist he so much admired. He became Sun’s most trusted lieutenant in the republic movement. Chan was the founder of 中國日報 (Chung-kuo Yatpo, the English name of the newspaper was plainly "Chinese") in Hong Kong (October 1900), a Chinese language newspaper that functioned as a mouthpiece for the revolutionists. #92-94 Hollywood Road was given as the address of the newspaper. Chan was a member of the HKU endowment fund sub-committee 1909 and was affiliated to the Chinese Commercial Union. Chan belonged to no less than two secret societies, namely Triad 三合會 and Gelaohui 哥老會. He joined the Triad in 1899 and soon became its "consigliere". In the same year he become a member of Gelaohui and was made "Don" for the Hong Kong chapter almost immediately. When Sun was installed ROC's Provisional President, Chan became his Chief of Staff (May 1921 - June 1922). Other important positions Chan had held in the ROC government included Inspector-General of the Central Bank 國立中華國民銀行 to which he was appointed in January 1922. He relinquished all public offices after 1922.
