CSM 2022 - Co-convenor Wanted !

We are now recruiting a Co-convenor for the 3rd Combined Scientific Meeting (CSM) co-hosted by Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) in Hong Kong in May 2022.
Since the CSM is a large-scale conference comparing to the Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) we organise every year, it is preferable to have the Co-convenor with at least 5-year post-fellowship. The Co-convenor appointed by the HKCA will be working closely with the Co-convenor appointed by ANZCA, and the other members of Organising Committee (OC) in the next few years. Regular OC meetings would be conducted at the HKAM Building and occasional travels might be required, if necessary. ANZCA based members of OC will join the OC meetings via teleconferences.
If you are interested in this post and your
FHKCA was awarded on or before 31st December 2014, please send your name to kristy@hkca.edu.hk on or before 14th April 2019.





Dr Sathasivam Anandaciva

We were saddened to hear of the passing away of Dr Sathasivam Anandaciva on 4th January 2019 at Pok Oi Hospital after long illness.
Dr Anandaciva is a Foundation Fellow, Council Member (1989-1991), 1st Vice President (1991-1993) and 2nd Vice President (1993-1995) of the HKCA. He is very well known and loved and respected amongst the anaesthetic community, intensive care specialists and nursing staff, especially those who were trained by him and worked as part of his team at Tuen Mun Hospital. A man of great intellect, absolute integrity, and a heart overflowing with love and care for those around him, we shall all miss him.

The following is the message from Dr Anandaciva’s family.




The certificates of the following fellows have not been collected yet. To collect your certificate, please go to the College's Office during office hour.
