Young Chinese Medical Practitioners.
Registration of Chinese Medical Practitioners adds some new faces to the medical market. In 1998, three tertiary institutions in Hong Kong offered Bachelor of Chinese Medicine in five-year curricula. There are about a hundred Chinese Medical graduates every year. A lot of Chinese Medical graduates work in public organisations under Hospital Authority to understudy and gain clinical experiences. Three years later, many of them switched to private organizations or opened their own clinics. Young Chinese Medical Practitioners are green hands. Their medical skills harbour suspicion inevitably. They come up with all sorts of plots. Can they build a new image of professionalism? Can they come up with a new way to practise Chinese Medicine?
