Overview of CME / CPD

tsoinsContinuing Medical Education (CME) / Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the continuation of education for all practising Fellows. Continuing Medical Education (CME) is a statutory requirement for Fellows of the Academy Colleges to stay in the Specialist Registry of the Medical Council of Hong Kong. The Hong Kong College of Paediatricians set up the CME Subcommittee (a subsidiary of the Education Committee) in 1995 to develop guidelines and run the CME programme for College Fellows.

Chairman of CME Subcommittee: Dr. TSOI Nai Shun

Subcommittee members

Academic meetings, organised by the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians, Hong Kong Paediatric Society (HKPS), paediatric subspecialty societies, International Pediatric Association, associations of South-east Asian Region, international paediatric or paediatric subspecialty societies, medical institutions, and study groups approved by Paediatric College, will be considered by the CME Subcommittee for accreditation. Activities related to paediatrics will be accredited. The points allocated will be publicised together with the notice of meetings.
