President's Welcome Message

 

Welcome to the website of The Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons (HKCOS).

 

Established in 1987, The Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons is the official organization in training orthopaedic specialists in Hong Kong.

 

The primary object of The Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons is to promote for public benefit the advancement of orthopaedic surgery which includes but is not limited to the investigation, preservation and restoration of the form and function of the extremities, spine, and associated structures by medical, surgical, and physical means with the aim of bringing relief to patients of all ages suffering from the effects of injury or disease of the musculoskeletal system. 

 

The Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons is responsible to set standards of training in orthopaedic surgery, to organize and monitor such training, and to promote the accreditation of such training in Hong Kong and internationally for the public benefit. We are also responsible to conduct professional examinations in orthopaedic surgery and liaise with local and international bodies for the purpose of conducting and accrediting these examinations.

 

The Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons also fosters continuing medical education of orthopaedic surgeons who have completed their training and maintains statutory recognition as the body responsible for determining standards of practice in orthopaedic surgery in Hong Kong for the public benefit.

 

On this website, you will be kept abreast of the history, constitution and structure of The Hong Kong College of Orthopaedic Surgeons. We also provide information to our trainees and fellows on fellowship training and post-fellowship continuous education in Orthopaedics and Traumatology. We hope that you find our website informative and useful.
