Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you to MTS Congress 2020 which will be held in Fraser Place, Puteri Harbour, Johor Bahru from 16th July 2020 until 19th July 2020.
Respiratory medicine has developed so much in recent years involving both diagnostic and treatment modalities in parallel with the emergence of new diseases and resurgence of old diseases. With all this in mind, we have put together a programme encompassing a wide range of topics to keep abreast with current updates. The conference will start with a workshop session on Sleep and Ventilation in Adults, Nicotine & Vaping-related Lung Injury, Non-invasive Ventilation in Children and Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy; after which, we will proceed with plenary sessions and symposia on both adult and paediatric respiratory medicine over the next 3 days.
Our programme will include topics on Small Airways Disease, Lung cancer, Interstitial Lung Disease, Respiratory infections, Pleural diseases, Interventional Pulmonology and Pulmonary Vascular Disease and eminent speakers have been invited to delve into these various topics. Specifically, for the fellows in respiratory medicine and others who may be interested, there will be interactive sessions with case discussion and quizzes to ensure that they participate actively in the programme; and the winner will take back a grand prize. The congress will not only be intellectually fulfilling, but you will also be entertained during our Gala dinner.
We hope that you will not only benefit from acquiring new knowledge and skills but will also be able to network for future collaboration, meet up with old friends, make new acquaintances and formulate new ideas for the betterment of our service to our patients. So, I look forward to seeing you in JB; the Southern Tiger awaits you.
Dr Rozanah Abd Rahman
