About the College

The Hong Kong College of General Practitioners, first established in 1977 by a group of dedicated general practitioners, had grown and matured during the following twenty years. It helped the two universities in Hong Kong to set up Family Medicine Units so that Family Medicine could be included in the Medical Curriculum as a distinct discipline. When the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine was established in 1993, the College was one of its fifteen Foundation colleges. The College was renamed the Hong Kong College of Family Physicians in 1997.

The College performs the following activities: -

  1.  Arranges a large number and variety of educational activities, meeting the needs of members working in different sectors.
  2. Ensures that trainees are properly supervised and training centres are up to standard in order to produce well-trained and well-qualified family physicians.
  3. Conducts yearly Conjoint Fellowship Examination with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners leading to Fellowship degrees of both Colleges.
  4. The College also assesses and recommends candidates for admission to the Fellowship of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine.
  5. Publishes the College quarterly journal, the Hong Kong Practitioner, contents of which include update articles and original research relevant to family medicine in Hong Kong.
  6. Encourages research in family medicine.
  7. Arranges for members to provide education to the public via health talks, interviews with mass media, and coordinate campaigns and exhibitions on important health issues.
  8. Maintains close relationship with family physicians worldwide by sending delegates to attend and present papers at international conferences, and collaborating with overseas centres to conduct research projects.
