Event Description


Dear Colleagues,

The Organising Committee warmly invites you to join us at this 19th Penang Teaching Conference for General Practitioners, to be held for the nineteenth time in Penang. Family medicine is a field of practice based on the knowledge and skills required for the diagnosis and management of a whole host of fields of medicine and requires a special brand of person. Our aim is to stimulate scientific thinking and impart knowledge to this special breed of doctors who form the backbone of medical practice in this county.

The two and half days’ programme will consist of lectures on a wide range of topics, as can be seen in the attached programme listing with a preceding day’s workshops.

This Conference is a wonderful opportunity to update yourself. Medical practitioners, medical students and allied health professionals will certainly benefit from the wide array of lectures.

On Thursday, 15/9/2016 there will be a pre-conference CPR workshop as well as workshops on Managing the Elderly in your Practice and ECGs you don’t want to miss, designed to invite your participation and to be hands on. You may of course attend the first day’s workshop alone or attend the whole conference package or just the conference alone without the Thursday workshop.

We urge you to expeditiously sign up and come to Penang to upgrade your knowledge and enjoy the wonderful hospitality of Penang.

Download the “Brochure” to find out more. The Closing date for registration is 8th September 2016.
