[1] Doctors who lacked the academic qualifications recognized by the Medical Board (essentially the General Medical Council in UK) to qualify to register were authorized to practice as private practitioners in Hong Kong as "exempted persons" effective July 8, 1908 [a]. They were however not to be listed in the Medical Register and not be addressed officially as "Dr".

For instance, Chung Boon-chor 鍾本初, a graduate of Tientsin Chinese Government College was engaged as a house surgeon of the Alice Memorial Hospital 1890-95, and the first Medical Superintendent 掌院 of Tung Wah Hospital 1896-1903.
