Naidu, Pala Dora Raj (1915-EOP)

updated December 19, 2013.

Hong Kong nlt.1907.

HONG KONG. LMSHK. Authorized to practice February 5, 1915 - EOP [1]. Private practitioner 1915-EOP, address 2/F, Gresson Street, Wanchai [2]. Authorized medical practitioner to sign medical certificates of death [n.d.]-EOP.

[1] LMSHK was the qualification awarded to graduates of the Hong Kong College of Medicine for Chinese HKCMC (1887-1912). Holders of LMSHK 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 and not be addressed officially as "Dr".
[a] There were hospital appointments, more particularly at missionary or charitable hospitals, prior to 1908. For instance, Kwan King-leung 關景良, LMSHK 1893, was permitted to practice at the Alice Memorial Hospital 1893.
[2] Naidu shared the same address at Gresson Street with Gwendolyn Ruth Nash and Pala Raj Timothy Naidu, whom she most likely was related. They had probably practiced together.
