Dr. Herbert Ho Ping Kong, a retired UHN senior consulting physician, has been named to the Order of Ontario.
A retired senior consulting physician from UHN is among the latest recipients of the Order of Ontario, the province's highest civilian honour.
Dr. Herbert Ho Ping Kong was named among 25 new appointees by The Honourable Edith Dumont, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.
"These Ontarians have demonstrated the highest levels of merit, excellence and dedication in their respective disciplines, and they have made significant impacts here at home and around the world," she said in a news release. "Our province gratefully acknowledges their remarkable contributions, which inspire us all to be leaders and change-makers."
The Order of Ontario recognizes exceptional leaders from all walks of life and diverse fields of endeavour whose impact and lasting legacy have played an important role in building a stronger province, country and world.
"Dr. Herbert Ho Ping Kong is a pioneer in medical education," his citation reads. "He has been the go-to source of diagnostic expertise, with an uncanny ability to ferret out the underlying causes of illnesses that have mystified other experts."
It also references his book, The Art of Medicine: Healing and the Limits of Technology, as a "must-read for students around the world."
In 2008, UHN opened the HoPingKong Centre for Excellence in Education and Practice (CEEP) to honour his lifetime contributions to medical education and exemplary legacy of diagnosing diseases. The Centre's purpose is to educate physicians for scholarly careers in General Internal Medicine and train the next generations of doctors who teach.
More than 870 people have been appointed to the Order of Ontario since it was established in 1986.
