Hong Kong Academy of Medicine

Renewing qualifications is a must for most professions

From accountants to doctors, most professions in Hong Kong have had mandatory continuing education for at least 10 years.

Formal exam is necessary

I refer to the letter headlined, 'Closed shop afflicts patients' right to choose' (South China Morning Post, October 7).

It is the intention of a proposed by-law amendment that any doctor will be required to sit an exit examination or assessment before he or she becomes a Fellow of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine.

Academy's requirements are reasonable

I REFER to the letter from W.M. Chow, which appeared in the South China Morning Post, on April 17, regarding the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine.

The letter mentioned that 'one of the rules of the academy demanding three years of post qualification experience before admission was allowed to the academy was grossly unfair and there was no justification for it'.

Let more specialists join academy

I REFER to the controversies surrounding the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine (HKAM). I fully agree with the view expressed by W.M. Chow in her letter headlined, 'Medical academy's time rule so unfair' (South China Morning Post, April 17).

Medical academy's time rule so unfair

I REFER to the controversies surrounding the rules and regulations for admission to the fellowship of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine (HKAM).

One of the rules demands three years of post qualification experience before admission is allowed to the academy.

This rule is grossly unfair and there is no justification for it.
