Introduction

The Young Fellows Chapter (YFC) was established in July 2017. Its membership is comprised of representatives from the 15 Specialty Colleges. A ‘young Fellow’ is one who is within ten years of being awarded Fellowship of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine.

Objectives of the YFC

  • To consider matters delegated to it by the Council and Academy Boards, as well as provide feedback and comments on issues relevant to young fellows.
  • To act as a platform for communication between young fellows and the Academy Council, and a conduit for the views of young fellows to be represented to the Council.
  • To promote young fellows engagement and involvement in the Academy.
  • To enable collaboration with other College groups to promote professional development and research among young fellows across the specialties locally and internationally.


Members of the YFC have an opportunity to participate in the activities of various boards and committees of the Academy, namely the Education Committee, HKMJ Editorial Board, House Committee, F&B Subcommittee, HKJC ILCM Advisory Committee, HKJC DPRI Governing Board, and Working Group on Professional Indemnity Insurance. The Chair and Vice-Chair are invited to attend Council meetings of the Academy in a non-voting capacity. Other members are invited to observe the activity of boards and committees and comment where appropriate.

Please feel free to email any enquiries or comments to the YFC at yfc@hkam.org.hk.
