of CME Cycle
reported previously, Council has decided that all Fellows would start their CME
cycle afresh on 1 January 2005, so as to synchronize with the duration of
practising certificate following the decision of Medical Council of Hong Kong to
make CME a requirement for practising doctors. In order to achieve this
end, CME cycles started within 3 years before 1 January 2005 will have to be
counted on a pro-rata basis. This means that if one’s CME cycle length
before 1 January 2005 is 1.5 years, he/she shall need to gain 45 CME points
before 1 January 2005. To facilitate Fellows in fulfilling the CME
requirements prior to that date, Council has approved the following one-off
arrangements proposed by some Colleges for the purpose of synchronization.
Please contact your College if you have queries.
the duration of a cycle immediately before 1 January 2005 is 6 months or less,
the cycle could be combined to the previous cycle, and the point requirement
would be adjusted on a pro-rata basis;
could consider adjusting the point capping for certain CME category if
necessary, subject to formal endorsement by Education Committee.
