Hong Kong Society for Emergency Medicine & Surgery
The development of HKSEMS was closely linked to the development of emergency medicine in Hong Kong. After the first A&E consultant was appointed in 1981, a group of dedicated A&E doctors joined together to form the Society in 1985. Thereafter, the Society organized various training activities, published a series of A&E reference manuals and the Hong Kong Journal of Emergency Medicine. These all helped establish the specialty status of emergency medicine in Hong Kong. After thirteen years of hard work, the Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine was finally established in 1997.
