To: All Fellows, Members and Associates of the College
Please read this IMPORTANT announcement about the application for accreditation of the Subspecialty of Paediatric Endocrinology and Metabolic Medicine (PEMM).
Our College has started to accredit paediatric subspecialties since 2013. This is in line with modern clinical practice, the need for credentialing and for preparation of the future Children's Hospital. The accreditation was done through a fair and stringent system, involving setting standard guidelines, open consultation to all College Fellows, and inviting an internationally renowned External Assessor and representatives of sister Colleges. The definition of a subspecialty has to be based on the pre-requisite criteria set by the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine. Our College also has pre-set standard accreditation procedures of any proposed new subspecialty. So far we have accredited the Subspecialties of Paediatric Immunology and Infectious Diseases (PIID), Developmental Behavioural Paediatrics (DBP) and Paediatric Neurology (PN). The Paediatric Respiratory Medicine (PRM) subspecialty will also be processed in the near future.
We now announce that our College has received an application for accreditation of the Subspecialty of Paediatric Endocrinology and Metabolic Medicine (PEMM). The application documents (The application forms, proposed training programme, curriculum vitae of external referees and programme leaders, and supporting letters from external referees) have been uploaded onto the College website for your information and downloading. Please follow the link below to obtain necessary information for application:
A full set of the documents is also kept at the College Secretariat at Room 801, Hong Kong Academy of Medicine Jockey Club Building and interested Fellows can come to read them during office hours from Monday to Friday.
In accordance with the pre-agreed logistics of handling any such application, we are making this announcement and inviting ALL Fellows, Members and Associates to give your comments on this application. This is an important step in the future development of paediatric service and may also have a big impact on paediatric practice in hospitals and in private practice in future.
Please send in your comments on the proposal on or before 15 September 2015 (Tuesday). The College will decide the way forward basing on the consensus opinion of our Fellows.
Dr CW Chan
Director of Subspecialty Boards
