Inaugural Messages

Inaugural Message from the President of the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians

Yeung Chap Yung

The Hong Kong College of Paediatricians was founded in 1991 with the primary objective to accredit and organize training programmes for paediatricians, to certify specialists in the discipline and to ensure a high standard of paediatric practice for the community. It was one of the 11 foundation Colleges of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine, which is a statutory professional body of Hong Kong.

Although most of our fellows are also members of the Hong Kong Paediatric Society, the function of our College is distinctly different from the Society. We welcome close liaison and co-operative projects with the Society to ensure that the interest of paediatricians and other child health professionals would be sustained and enhanced.

We are acutely aware of the enormous effort the Hong Kong Paediatric Society has put into the production of the Hong Kong Journal of Paediatrics in years past. We are extremely grateful to the Society for inviting the College to join forces to produce a single paediatric Journal for Hong Kong which would jointly be the official publication of both the Society and the College. A new editorial board now comprises of representation from each of the two organizations. A new title known as "Hong Kong Journal of Paediatrics - new series" has now been adopted for this new journal which would be distributed to all the fellows/members/associates of the Hong Kong College of Paediatricians and the members of the Hong Kong Paediatric Society.

I am hopeful that the Journal, as an official publication of the College, will be supported by all fellows and will be a regular publication from now on. I am also hopeful that the Journal would become an important venue of professional and academic exchanges in the English literature for paediatricians especially for those working on child health issues related to Chinese children.
