The Hong Kong College of Family Physicians
The Hong Kong College of General Practitioners, first established in 1977 by a group of dedicated general practitioners, had grown and matured during the following twenty years. It helped the two universities in Hong Kong to set up Family Medicine Units so that Family Medicine could be included in the Medical Curriculum as a distinct discipline. When the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine was established in 1993, the College was one of its fifteen Foundation colleges. The College was renamed the Hong Kong College of Family Physicians in 1997.
