A Piece of Our History

A piece of our history: a Chinese translation of the Hippocratic Oath from the late 1980s

We recently discovered a piece of art created by one of our society’s founding members – a beautiful artwork of Chinese calligraphy which signifies the representation of Chinese Canadian medical doctors in Canadian medical society of the late 1980s. We give our thanks to Gladys Tong, who has researched the events around the creation of this artwork and written an introduction as follows.

In Memory of Dr. Madeline Chung

Dr. Madeline Huang Chung, the first female Chinese Obstetrician in Canada, passed away peacefully at her home in Vancouver at the age of 96 on August 22nd, 2021. Dr. Chung was born in Shanghai China in 1925 and graduated from Yale in China in 1948. She received a 4 year residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and moved to Vancouver to practice in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Vancouver General Hospital and the old Grace Hospital. She was popular among medical students and residents because of her dedication to teaching, in spite of initially being denied an academic appointment. Over a long career from 1956-1992 she delivered 7,226 babies.
