AbstractDespite their similar goals, there is considerable difference between the training programme of family doctors in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom (UK). This paper describes the structure and assessment process of the British training programme whilst highlighting the local needs giving rise to such arrangements. The compulsory vocational training in general practice in the UK aims to equip doctors to practice safely and independently whereas the optional higher qualifications such as MRCGP prepares young doctors for future medical challenges and career development. The training programme is designed to be flexible and inclusive. It has benefited me greatly and I would therefore argue that postgraduate training should be introduced for all future community-based doctors.
