Message from the President, G. Tang, June 2005
I would like to take this opportunity to
thank our Colleges, respective Presidents and representatives for their
participation in the recent Academy delegationís visit to
In the coming months, the Academy and its
Colleges shall be participating in the setting up of training, accreditation
and registration for specialists on the Mainland. We would like to share our
experience as well as to contribute our efforts for a very worthwhile cause.
I am particularly keen on the exchange of
training for the young doctors.
Continuous professional development and
education is another area that the Academy continues to review and refine. It
is necessary to know that at the end of our learning, there is knowledge
translation into practice, an improved practice. The CPD/CME office with its
new Executive officer and new Associate Directors will certainly rise to this
challenge. We would like to have more activities carried out through
electronic means, and the starting point should be the recording of CPD/CME
activities and scores. For the latter, it should be possible for every Fellow
to know his/her scores through the Membership and Learning Management System
The Academy has started these new initiatives and I am calling on every Fellow to participate. I shall keep you informed. Together we will have a vibrant future for the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine.
