All Medical Practitioners of Hong Kong welcome

Introduced on 2 June, the Medical Registration Ordinance (Amendment) Bill seeks to create a new pathway for non-locally trained doctors to practise in Hong Kong, ostensibly to resolve a shortage of doctors in the public sector.

This Forum aims to acquaint doctors with the new pathway and encourage a free exchange of opinions with the Government and the Hospital Authority, before a bill that may change our practice terrain becomes law.

Physical Venue:

Federation of Medical Societies of Hong Kong

15 Hennessy Rd, Wan Chai
