FEATURE The 100th anniversary celebrations of the Department of Medicine were marked not only by a series of academic conferences, but also in song. Composed by Professor Sydney Tang Chi-wai, Deputy Chairperson of the Department, who also chaired the organising committee of the centenary celebration, the Centenary Song, is fittingly called A Miracle Within after Dr Michael Cheung Ka-shing and Dr Woo Yu-cho wrote witty lyrics for it. Staff and students actively participated in the making of a music video. This three-minute Cantonese pop song reflects all remarkable aspects and achievements of the Department – its history, its specialties, warm teacherstudent relations, and visions for the future. The video has been uploaded to YouTube and was also shown at the opening of the Hong Kong Medical Forum in May, when it was praised by the Chief Executive of the HKSAR government, Mr John Lee Ka-chiu. Celebration in Song ‘I was touched... by not just the professionalism of our medical colleagues, but the warmth and the soft side that they have displayed in this music video. So I want to tell everybody from now on that it is not just the helpful attitude and the kind hearts of the medical professionals in Hong Kong, it is also their love and passion for Hong Kong that have been fully expressed in this very lovely music video,’ Mr Lee said. In addition to the Forum, the Medical Research Conference in January also commemorated the 100th anniversary, as did a joint symposium in November with the University of Cambridge, titled ‘Embracing Medical Sciences into the Next Centenary’. The Department also worked with RTHK’s Doctor and You Programme and the HiEggo YouTube channel to produce a series of special episodes about each of the 12 divisions.
