1. Assessment and Examination
This was headed by Dr. S. P. Hui who spent a great deal of time liaising with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Finally, the first primary conjoint Fellowship Examination was held on 16th October, 1993 in Hong Kong with 20 candidates attending and 10 passing the Examination. The conjoint final Fellowship Examination was later held in March 1994 with 9 candidates attending and 4 passing the Examination.
2. Training and Education
Setting up a effective and internationally recognized system of training is of vital importance. Dr. Patrick Ho and Dr. C. K. Ho formed an Education Committee consisting of Prof. Ernest Goldschmidt, Dr. Philip Lam, Dr. Cheung Ming Kuen, Dr. Raymond Tse and Dr. Leung Tai Shing. The College Training Curriculum was completed on 1st September 1994 and was later passed by the Council of the College of Surgeons of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine. Training courses at the Department of Anatomy, Chinese University of Hong Kong were also arranged for eye trainees taking the first part of the Fellowship Examination and a new log book was designed which was alter amended and distributed to all our trainees. Dr. C. K. Ho was also appointed to sit in the Education Committee of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine in May 1994.
3. Membership
Criteria for admission as Fellows of the College was one of the most difficult tasks. The board had to ensure that all those who were admitted possessed adequate ophthalmic knowledge and skills while at the same time the practice of all the other existing colleagues would not be jeopardize. Finally, the Council decided to admit in a one-off exercise with the grandfather clause, those eye doctors having any one of the following qualifications:
a. twenty five years of good practice in the field of ophthalmology;
b. Diploma of Ophthalmology obtained on/before June 1982, as this was accepted by the Hong Kong Government for Consultant post before that date; c. overseas fellowship or its equivalent.
A total of 89 members (3 by the 25 years grandfather clause, 9 by the grandfather clause with D.O., 16 by D.O. on/before 1983 and 61 by overseas fellowship or its equivalent) were nominated by our Faculty for admission as Fellows of the College of Surgeons of Hong Kong.
4. Continued Medical Education
After repeated liaison with the Hong Kong Ophthalmological Society, it was finally agreed in 1993 that the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society would be re-organized to become a conjoint activity of both the Faculty and Society. The meeting was renamed the Hong Kong Ophthalmological Symposium 1993 and was jointly organized by both parties. It has since then become the major annual event of our College, to be held on the first Saturday and Sunday of every December. It has also become a major event of our profession for continued education and resource generation.
