RECENT clinical practice updates will be the focus of a new set of discussions by Forward NUMed that will be held on March 4.
The event is being organised by Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) and supported by medical universities and internal medicine experts.
The event’s main goal is to provide insight into how young doctors can efficiently train for internal medicine while gaining broad exposure that will prepare them for their medical career paths.
This half-day talk session, which will be held at NUMed’s campus and telecast via Zoom, will feature internal medicine and clinical practice experts providing in-depth discussions on various medical practices that the next generation of medical professionals should be aware of.
The purpose of the talk is to provide doctors, house officers, MBBS graduates, and medical students with a comprehensive understanding of clinical practice.
According to NUMed chief operating officer Premila Nair, internal medicine remains a prominent medical specialty that young practitioners should explore.
“In this session, we hope to provide our audience with a thorough understanding of internal medicine.
“Our speakers will discuss postgraduate medical diplomas such as the MRCP PACES examination and offer advice on how to pass it.
“This will be led by Prof Edmund Ong, who is the honorary professor and consultant physician at NUMed,” said Nair.
Audience members will be able to gain a thorough understanding of the parallel pathway in Malaysia’s Health Ministry, through a talk provided by Monash University Malaysia professor of medicine (clinical school) Prof GR Letchuman Ramanathan.
It will highlight specific recommendations and updates that doctors may anticipate during clinical practice, and ways to excel in their practice.
“If a doctor is not extremely cautious, a single lawsuit from a patient can devastate his entire career, resulting in lost revenue, increased insurance costs, and a significant hit to his professional reputation.
“Thus, we have also included a session which will be led by expert lawyer Harikannan Ragavan, who will discuss medical law updates and how to avoid malpractice lawsuits,” Nair added.
Forward NUMed Talk Series: Updates in Clinical Practice is now open to the public, with a limited number of seats available.
