The present Paediatric Specialty Training Curriculum was published in 2007. The College has initiated a review to cater for the changing training landscape in Paediatrics to suit the needs of the Hong Kong community.

Narration by Dr Joanna Tung

Review Process

A Working Group was formed in 2019 to discuss how the review should be conducted.

The group has taken reference of the curriculum of the other professional bodies like the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, Medical Council of Hong Kong.


The Group had also researched into the recent trends of curriculum development.


(1) The new curriculum addresses the need of the local paediatric population

(2) The curriculum is based on competence and outcome instead of time and volume

(3) More formative assessments and workplace based assessement are included

(4) To create a collaborative training environment
