Our Mission

The Hong Kong Medical Association, founded in 1920, brings together all medical practitioners practising in, and serving the people of, Hong Kong. Its objective is to promote the welfare of the medical profession and the health of the public. With the current membership of 7,000 from all sectors of medical practice, it speaks collectively for its members and aims to keep its members abreast of medical ethics and issues around the world.

The Association takes pride in displaying in its emblem its motto in Chinese which translates into "to safeguard the health of the people" to pronounce the sacred duty of a medical practitioner to look after his/her patients.

Give Your Heart
Lyrics/Music: Dr. Alvin Y.S. Chan

Give your heart to the medical profession
Give your life in dedication
Share your love and your hope
Share your faith in life
for good health
Our best we will try
We will work hand in hand
with the oath in our hearts
Make the practice a more human art
We will ask    We will search
We'll excel, be alert
Serve the people of Hong Kong
Let us dream    Let us learn
Let us strive to make the world go on better
Let's concern!
