|Monday, 27 August 2012|
In June, Professor Chuen Neng Lee was awarded the RCSEd International Medal in recognition of his contribution to the field of cardiothoracic surgery in the Far East.
The President of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Mr David Tolley said: “Professor Lee has been instrumental in establishing along with RCSEd an Asian Update Course in Cardiothoracic Surgery. This course is in its fifth year and follows the tripartite intercollegiate Fellowship in Cardiothoracic Surgery held in Hong Kong and Singapore. His role in establishing this examination cannot be underestimated and he has been keen to promote quality assessment in both this exam and other exams with the College in Singapore.
“RCSEd has a long history of innovation and Professor Lee’s contribution exemplifies this quality. I take great pleasure in presenting this International Medal to mark his outstanding contributions in advancing the field of surgery.”
