At the start of the academic year, the campus brims with curious adolescents looking like they’re barely out of secondary school, chasing school buses or lining up outside cafeterias. The university will be where they grow up and mature. Year 1 medical students, only 18 years old, don their white coats and take the oath to uphold professional ethics. But before entering the ward, they stop in the autopsy room. Confucius said, ‘If you do not know life, how can you know death?’ The reverse can also be true. Working face to face with death on a daily basis, the University’s embalmer Ng Kwai-lun Pasu shares how he gets inspiration for life from the eternal sleep. The University knows that any profession needs checks and balances. CUHK founded Hong Kong’s first bioethics centre to provide ethics education to medical students and students of other disciplines. Professors Fok Tai-fai and Francis Chan talk to us about the vision and mission of the centre. Job requirements may change but real substance remains the foundation of any career. Mr. H. discusses the importance of discretion in this issue. 目录 Contents 廿一世纪生命伦理 The Ethics of 21st Century Medical Practice 2 Letters to a Young Executive 3 洞明集 In Plain View 4 博文贯珍 The Galleria 5 中大新生开展学术新旅程 New Students Begin Their Academic Journey at CUHK 6 . . . 校园消息 Campus News 7 到任同仁 Newly Onboard 8 宣布事项 Announcements 9 口谈实录 Viva Voce 10 医学院在9月6日举行首届「白袍典礼」,逾二百名新入学的医科生在院长带领下宣读誓词,承诺恪守医者的最高专业操守。 Led by the Dean of Medicine, over 200 newly admitted medical students took the oath to uphold the highest professional ethics in the inaugural ‘White Coat Ceremony’ held on 6 September. 照顾「无言老师」宝贵身躯的防腐师伍桂麟(页10) Ng Kwai-lun Pasu, caretaker of ‘Silent Teachers’ (p. 10)
