AJS McFadzean Distinguished Lecture
Professor AJS McFadzean (1914 – 1974), a distinguished physician from Glasgow who became the city’s first post-war and longest serving Professor of Medicine (1948 – 1974), had shaped the way medicine was taught and practiced locally. With his clinical acumen, Professor McFadzean offered countless patients hopes of recovery from their suffering, and inspired generations of astute physicians to continue his legacy in putting Hong Kong medicine on the international map of excellence. His insistence in understanding the scientific basis of health and disease laid the foundation of medical education and research in Hong Kong. To commemorate the achievements and contributions to medicine of Professor McFadzean, the AJS McFadzean Visiting Professorship has been established in the Department of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong.
