Dear Fellows, Members and Associates,

I am very pleased to announce the first Paediatric Update by the College this year on 2 March 2024 (Saturday) 2 pm at M Ground Lecture Theatre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, 30 Gascoigne Road, Kowloon. The title is "Rashes in Children".

We have invited five experts to give us talks on different rashes. The talks will be enriched with a lot of illustrated examples. It will be a great refresher, not only for the MRCPCH clinical exam but also for our daily work.

Please refer to the attached poster for details of the speakers and the topics. 

I cordially invite you to come and would look forward to seeing you at the event.


Yours sincerely,

S P Wu

Vice President
