  • Part 1 and 2 Examination

    Parts 1 and 2 are multiple choice papers. Part 1 paper tests on Applied Basic Science of Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology. Part 2 paper tests on knowledge of Clinical Problem Solving. Both MCQ papers may be taken at any time after possessing a primary medical qualification from Medical School in Hong Kong or other qualification which deemed equivalent by HKICBSC. Mainland China trainees from Mainland China training centres accredited by the constituent Colleges of HKICBSC (provided that they undergo such training at the time of or after the relevant accreditation) are also eligible to enter the Examination. Each paper stands alone; candidates will be awarded either a pass or fail. Candidates must start Basic Surgical Training within 3 years after passing the Parts 1 or 2, whichever is taken the latest, otherwise candidates have to retake the examinations before they are eligible to take the Part 3 Examination. Both papers must be passed before candidates may enter the Part 3 Examination.
