Candidates in Hong Kong
Candidates on a Hong Kong training programme need to complete an additional and separate application to the Hong Kong College of Community Medicine (HKCCM) for the conjoint The Faculty of Public Health Diplomate examination (DFPH) in Public Health. This form and further information can be found at the Hong Kong College of Community Medicine website.
Candidates with a background other than medicine (and other candidates not in a Hong Kong training programme) applying to sit the DFPH in Hong Kong also need to complete an additional application to the HKCCM. This is not an application to sit the conjoint UK/HKCCM examination. The HKCCM acts for the Faculty of Public Health in the capacity of an examination administering body and requires a separate application form and fee to cover administrative costs.
In addition to following the normal UK application procedure outlined above, candidates should:
1. Complete the additional application form
2. Pay an administrative fee of HK$2000 to the HKCCM by attaching a cheque to the application form.
Additional details of the examination, eg. venue, time etc., will be sent to each candidate by the HKCCM.
Please note, the HKCCM acts only in the capacity of an examination administering authority, which is not equivalent to the conjoint arrangements for some of the other candidates.
The HKCCM will not recognise the qualification gained by candidates taking the Hong Kong sitting of the UK FPH examination if they have a background other than medicine.
