We are pleased to announce that College will be hosting a one and a half day Annual Scientific Meeting this year at the HK Academy of Medicine Building, half day on Saturday (Dec 5) immediately preceding the College AGM and Annual Dinner, and full day on Sunday (Dec 6). The meeting will consist of case-based symposia, a free paper session, a session on Office Paediatrics and a "Young Fellows' session". There is also a session on medico-legal ethics presented by a legal expert. This will be a unique opportunity for paediatricians to discuss, share and update clinical paediatric knowledge in an interactive way.  Focus will be on cross-disciplinary holistic care of children, scientific updates and presentation of the latest in paediatric research. Please find attached the poster and details for registration

Abstract submission deadline: 5th October 2015

We invite you to submit your abstracts to the Free Paper Session (both clinical and basic science research are welcome).  In particular, young investigators are encouraged to submit abstracts to make this meeting a success.  You may select "oral presentation" if you do wish to be considered for an oral presentation during the free paper session.

Dr. Brian CHUNG ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
