The New URL for iCMECPD - http://www.icmecpd.hk

The Membership and Learning Management System, or MLMS, shall now be known as International Network for Continuing Medical Education and Continuous Professional Development, or iCMECPD.  A new URL http://www.icmecpd.hk has been launched on 31 July 2006, for iCMECPD with enhanced functions and services. 

Fellows of Colleges that have joined the iCMECPD, can now log into the system not only to view their CME profiles but also to print out the CME record details for reference and use.  Moreover, the Calendar has been enhanced for all Fellows to shortlist information by month, year, HKAM/College activities, events held in Hong Kong or overseas.  The selected data can also be saved for future reference. 

If Fellows have any queries or comments on the enhanced functions, please feel free to submit your message to the CME/CPD Office via the iCMECPD website.
