Brief history of the HKIAP

The idea of forming a Hong Kong Division of IAP was conceptualized by Prof. Joseph Lee and Dr. Philip Allen In 1986. The issue was raised and agreed at the AGM of the Hong Kong Pathology Society that year. It was envisaged that the Hong Kong Division would become a focal point of contact with Divisions of IAP in other countries and with the international office of IAP in Washington, D.C., U.S.A. The Constitution and By-laws were then drawn up. Through a postal poll, Dr. C.W. Chan, Prof. Faith Ho and Prof. Joseph C.K. Lee were appointed as conveners. In 1987, an interim committee was set up with Dr. Lily Ma as Chairman, Dr. S.K. Chan as Honorary Secretary, Dr. W.P. Mak as Honorary Treasurer, Dr. C.W Chan, Dr. Y.F. Chan, Dr. H.C. Ho and Prof. J.C.K. Lee as Members. Read more
