Welcome to the official website of the Hong Kong Society for Emergency Medicine and Surgery (HKSEMS)!
Emergency Medicine (EM) is a very unique specialty. The scope of practice encompasses pre-hospital and in-hospital patient management. Thus intellectual collaborations and endeavors among EM physicians, EM nurses and paramedics are vital to the development of EM.
HKSEMS was established in 1985 by a group of enthusiastic EM pioneers in HK. Since then, HKSEMS undertook the responsibility of EM training. We introduced several internationally recognised courses such as the first Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support in Hong Kong in 1992 and Paediatric Advanced Life Support Course. Apart from education, we are dedicated to look after the needs of our members and work as a hub for connection among our members, regional and oversea EM counterparts. We have successfully hosted the Asian Conference on Emergency Medicine 2004 and Hong Kong-Shenzhen Emergency Conference in 2009, 2013 and 2017.
Being a member of the Asian Society for Emergency Medicine, we are proud to announce that HKSEMS will co-organised with the Hong Kong College of Emergency Medicine to host the Asian Conference on Emergency Medicine 2021. The theme is “Global Challenge, Asian Solutions”. This biennial conference, being one of the most influential conferences in Emergency Medicine, will be a precious platform for meeting and networking with regional and international experts in Emergency Medicine. The Organising Committee has been working hard to create a comprehensive program to suit the needs of participants with different backgrounds. Stay tuned!
On the website, you will find the updates about HKSEMS and ample information that will be useful for your work and personal development. We also embrace the power of social media. Stay connected and visit our Facebook Page. Your feedback is always appreciated.
Let’s work together for the betterment of EM development!

Closely linked to the development of emergency medicine in Hong Kong
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 formed the Society in 1985.
Thereafter, we organized various training activities, published series of A&E reference manuals and the Hong Kong Journal of Emergency Medicine. With these the specialty status of emergency medicine is established in Hong Kong after 13 years of hard work.
