‘Salam sejahtera’. Greetings from the 27th Malaysian Urological Conference (27th MUC) Organizing Committee.
As the organizing chairman of the upcoming 27th MUC, it is with great honour that I welcome you to the annual conference of the Malaysian Urological Association to be held in the beautiful and diverse city of Kuala Lumpur. This year, the prestigious Shangri-La Hotel, in the heart of the city will host the conference from the 22nd to 24th November 2018.
With the theme “Shades of Grey in Urology”, the scientific programme for the main conference, apart from concentrating on latest updates on all aspects of urology, there will be a slight preponderance towards controversial and practical dilemma faced in day-to-day Urology. We are also dedicating sessions to Surgical Master class in Urology and medico-legal scenarios impacting our services.
The organizing committee is proud to announce several changes in the annual event this year. Significantly, we are a full 3-days conference packed with outstanding scientific content which will definitely allow delegates to enrich their armamentarium with take home messages, tips and tricks from a distinguished panel of speakers. I would also like to highlight that we are experimenting with an eco-friendly format by adapting a ‘paperless’ concept, as far as possible.
Our international collaborators have again confirmed their support and participation in our annual conference. We are delighted to announce the contribution from the European Association of Urology, SIU, UAA and the British Journal of Urology International (BJUI). Together with other local, regional and international faculty, I hope to give all delegates and excellent opportunity to widen their networking, exchange ideas and meet up with friends and colleagues. You can contribute too, by submitting abstracts in the various categories and sharing your insights during the interactive sessions.
It is our hope that this conference will give you a memorable experience and looking forward to seeing you there.
Selamat Datang ke Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Welcome to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia).
