The Academy has been developing IT systems (e.g. iCMECPD) that aim to maximise the effectiveness of the learning process for Academy Fellows and specialist trainees.

In June 2021, the Academy formed a Task Force supported by a project team to kick off the work on the development of a Learning Management System (eHKAM LMS), an online platform to provide e-Learning resources and virtual learning experience in response to the demand for new forms of education and training. An online survey and focus group interviews were conducted to collect users' needs for the development of a user-friendly and fit-for-purpose platform for conducting online CME / CPD as well as specialist training activities.

The system has been officially launched in October 2022. To further provide one-stop online experience, a new eHKAM Portal has also been launched together with eHKAM LMS. Academy Fellows can easily access different online resources from this Portal. While the existing iCMECPD will also be integrated, the new eHKAM platform unifies various online systems of the Academy in the digital era.

eHKAM ID

Academy Fellows and CSR registrants are eligible to register for a new online credential to access the eHKAM platform. With the advantage of Single Sign-on technology, users can access all systems under the eHKAM umbrella with this single credential. Besides the Single Sign-on function, a dedicated email address and personal cloud storage space will be provided to each registered Academy Fellow*.

To register for your eHKAM ID, please use the online registration form.

* Email and cloud storage services are provided by Google; Personal cloud storage space is not available to CSR registrants.
