85 Years of Caduceus

Past Volumes

Look out for 85 Years of Caduceus, the 85th anniversary edition of the venerable student medical publication.


With a history of more than nine decades, Caduceus is one of the oldest student publications in Hong Kong. Caduceus provides a great way to study the medical history of Hong Kong, providing more than a glimpse of our changing society through its record of the lives of medical students and important events in the local medical community. It is also fun to browse through old editions to understand how our predecessors learned and practised medicine. Along the way, there may be encounters with interesting "ancient" diseases such as beri beri and the chance to trace the early steps of giants such as Dr Li Shu Fan.
