(2012-07-03)

国大医院心脏外科手术医生李俊能教授获颁爱丁堡皇家外科医学院国际奖章,以表扬他在心胸外科领域所作的贡献。他是过去14年来,获颁这个奖章的第三名本地医生。

李俊能教授(61岁)目前是国大医院大学外科系总主任、国大心脏中心副总监,也是国大杨潞龄医学院外科系主任。

他于上周五在爱丁堡皇家外科医学院的颁奖典礼上领取了这个奖项。医学院主席大卫·托利(David Tolley)在学院发出的文告中指出,李俊能在跟该学院合作开办一项心脏外科亚洲复习课程上,扮演了重要角色,他也积极推广这项考试和学院在新加坡举行的其他考试的素质评估部分。

创办于1505年的爱丁堡皇家外科医学院,是世界上历史最悠久和成员最多的外科组织之一。

李俊能在1986年设立了国大医学院心脏外科部。他于1998年离开公共医院到私人医院工作,又在2001年因为对医学培训和研究的热忱,回返国大医院。国大医院昨天发文告表示他们为李俊能感到骄傲。

李俊能指出,能跟世界各地的同僚一起工作是一件有乐趣的事,特别是爱丁堡皇家外科医学院那一群与他一样对教育和培训有热忱的同僚。他说:“我期待能继续跟他们合作,在新加坡和外国教育下一代的外科医生。”
