Obituary - Prof. CHAN Siu Yee Cynthia

Updated: Dec 17, 2020

Prof. Chan joined the Department of Community Medicine (a forerunning unit of the School) as a full-time teacher in May 1986, and served until March 2003. She continued her service in the School in form of honorary position until June 2019. With great sadness, she passed away in Canada on 12 December 2020.

Prof. Chan was an associate professor with both teaching and clinical duties. Throughout her 17 years’ full-time service in CUHK, she nourished people around her with professionalism, knowledge and love. She was not just a caring teacher but a healing physician who earned great respect and adoration from her medical students and patients at the Lek Yuen Health Centre. Prof. Chan’s passion in teaching essential skills of doctoring lives on through her generous donation of the CU Cyke Student prizes for ‘Communication Skills and Holistic Care’ and ‘Patient and Team Communication’ in the medical year 5 and 6 at CU medicine.

Our deep condolences to Prof. Chan’s family.
