Brief Introduction:

Dr Chan has joined the Department in July of 2020 as CIinical Associate Professor. Throughout the years, apart from clinical practice in Psychiatry, he has been involved in various teaching and administrative works as well as research activities. In addition, he has been advocating territory-wide mental health promotion campaigns and community projects for public education and anti-stigmatization.

On the other hand, he has been a professional songwriter since his medical student days, with subsequent involvement in a wide range of cross-media and cultural works across the decades.

Cultivating in both Psychiatry and culture, he began to realize their common ground in humanity, in the midst of the emerging upheavals for human beings and our world across the Millennium. In late 2016, he went to the University of Cambridge as Academic Visitor in the Department of East Asian Studies in the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies to learn about history and culture and to study on the impact of digitalization to human beings.

His recent academic interest is on the impact of the post-Millennial world to human mind, mental health and society with inter-disciplinary perspectives, especially in young people.
