Dear Colleagues,
Following the establishment of six Paediatric Subspecialties, the Committee for Subspecialty Boards (CSB) would like to conduct a review of the subspecialty accreditation process in order to assess the impact on general paediatric services as well as subspecialty services and development. We aim to identify areas for improvement and ensure that the future subspecialty development is robust and sustainable. We wish particularly to examine and ensure that the service needs of our children are met and sound service infrastructures are implemented in well-established training institutions.
With support of the College Council, the CSB has decided to hold a Forum to provide a platform for the Chiefs of Service or delegates to give suggestion and advice on the impact of the subspecialty accreditation process and paediatric development in Hong Kong training institutions:
