Scottish physician Dugald Christie, an 1881 licentiate of both the RCPE and  the  RCSEd, was  the  first  medical  missionary  sent  to  China  by  the  United Presbyterian Church of Scotland. He commenced practice in the city of Mukden (Shenyang)  in  Manchuria  in  1883.  In  1892  he  started  to  train  student  assistants and  in  1911  founded  the  Mukden  Medical  College  (Fengtian  yi  ke  da  xue). Edinburgh-trained physicians  and  surgeons  largely  staffed  this  college, the  first Western medical school in Manchuria.
