Recognition of the Hong Kong College of Community Medicine (HKCCM) Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) program for CEP certification of Hong Kong FRACMA
Approval Date: August 2016
Next Review Date: August 2019
Review By: Education and Training Committee/CEP Committee

1. Background

There are a number of HKCCM Fellows (FHKCCM) who are also RACMA Fellows (FRACMA). FHKCCM must undergo a compulsory CME/CPD program. The HKCCM CME/CPD program guidelines and activities are considered equal to those required by the RACMA Continuing Education Program (CEP) and are expected to be completed during a three year cycle (triennium).

Annually, joint FHKCCM/FRACMA who completes the HKCCM CME/CPD requirements will be given automatic certification for the same RACMA CEP period.


2. Procedure
In consultation with the HK CEP Co-ordinator, the RACMA Secretariat will provide a list of FRACMA in HK to the HKCCM Secretariat. The HKCCM Secretariat will confirm compliance to the HKCCM CME/CPD requirements of those RACMA Fellows in HK.

The HK CEP Co-ordinator and CEP Committee Chair will endorse certification of the FHKCCM/FRACMA with the RACMA CEP Certificate.
