AbstractPrince of Wales Hospital, a 1400-bed regional referral center, was established in 1984 as the primary teaching hospital of the second medical school in Hong Kong at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The Academic Division of Neurosurgery was given an autonomous status, the support of 40 acute beds, and a well-equipped and well-staffed intensive care unit (ICU), in developing neurosurgery as a distinct surgical specialty. Over this short 26-year history, we have gone through the difficult time of one-man-band neurosurgery, excelled in emergency neurosurgery, and evolved to an era of organized neurosurgical practice, where clinical services, teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate students, and clinical and translational research have been brought up to international standards.
