President’s Message
The Celebration Dinner Gathering for the 20th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Society of Certified Prosthetist-Orthotists was held on 17 April 2015 at the Staff Club of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  There were a lot of changes in the local P&O discipline in the past 2 decades.  These included the moving of the hospital-based training to The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and also the evolving of the BSc in Prosthetics and Orthotics Programme to the Prosthetics and Orthotics Concentration of the BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Engineering.  A post-degree Graduate Prosthetist-Orthotist Training Programme has also be implemented in the Hospital Authority for the graduates to cumulate their clinical experience.  The implementation of the 3-3-4 education system also had impact on the structure of the P&O education. The last batch of P&O students with 3 years of undergraduate education will graduate later this summer.  This also means that we shall have graduates of the 4-year undergraduate system in 2016 summer. 
The Society is now at the beginning of the 3rddecade and would like to take the opportunity to launch the new website with enhanced design and function to serve our members and other people with their interest in prosthetics and orthotics. We hope that the new website will allow members to access information or to complete various tasks, such as checking and reporting  CPD activities  in a more user friendly and effective way.
The Prosthetics and Orthotics Scientific Meeting 2015 (POSM 2015) will be held on 17 October 2015. I hope to see all of you at the meeting.
