President's Message

Dr Chan Siew Pheng

Honorary Professor

First and foremost may I wish you all the very best for 2022.

 

As promised last year, we are BACK! Now in a HYBRID format; physical delegates at our usual Conference venue as well as virtual delegates (streaming online) – to cater for the effect of having to socially distance, with reduced numbers attending the physical Conference as well as to allow those healthcare professional colleagues who may remain reluctant to travel and attend face-to-face meetings. 

 

COVID continues to dominate our health care agenda, but we cannot allow ourselves as well as our patients to lose sight of other diseases and their impact on their health.  It is important

to  acknowledge the indirect impact of all stakeholders’ unfortunate tendency to ignore other medical disorders. 
There has been an unprecedented, unfortunate disruption to training, and educational activities. Let us work together to rebuild and re-focus.  Therefore, the appropriate theme of this year’s MAC 12 – “Annual Endocrine Booster: Getting Ahead of the Curve”


Our main objectives are to enhance continuing medical education and bringing you the latest up-to-date clinical practice guidance with a focus on Endocrinological disorders. Building on previous successes, a key part of the programme will include the ever-popular Interactive Case discussions, and Meet-The-Expert sessions. In addition, recognising that majority of our patients will consult their Primary Care Doctors/ Family Medicine Specialists/ General Practitioners (forming the grass-roots support) – 1 full tract has been dedicated to addressing common Endocrine problems encountered in primary care.

Finally, this forum will be an ideal opportunity to re-connect with your colleagues, make new connections, meet and discuss with the experts. So, don’t hesitate, come and join us on 15-17 July 2022!

Dr Hew Fen Lee

Consultant Endocrinologist

As we are still battling the covid pandemic and slowly emerging from the lockdown and restriction, we realise the ever increasing gaps in our health care delivery and management particularly in chronic noncommunicable diseases. New clinical issues have also arisen and as health care professionals, the challenges have escalated.
 

My colleagues in the Organising Committee and I are honoured and delighted to bring you MAC 12. The theme this year is: "Annual Endocrinology Booster: Getting Ahead Of The Curve."

This year we have decided to focus on the day-to-day clinical management issues that we face. We have invited well-known international speakers to give update on the forefront of medical science and development in clinical medicine, balanced with senior and experienced local speakers who would share with us their clinical opinions and management pearls.

 

The programme shall address many clinical issues that are faced by not only specialists, but also general practitioners too. The sessions will be as interactive as the circumstances allow. This year the meeting will be a hybrid meeting with physical participation for those who can attend, and virtually too. We would endeavour to make sure the experience is as rewarding and fulfilling either way.

I would like to thank the speakers both local and overseas who have not only made time to participate but have also given us valuable suggestions for the MAC 12 programme. I would also like to register my gratitude to the industry sponsors who universally share our enthusiasm and the aim of MAC 12.

The aim of the MAC 12 is to bridge the gaps: the interrupted medical knowledge gap of obtaining latest medical updates and education; the fellowship gap of professional interaction between colleagues; and most importantly the treatment gap for our patients with noncommunicable diseases that is widening due to the distraction and resource reallocation from the covid pandemic.

 

Getting ahead of the curve and meeting the need of the medical professionals would help Malaysia move one step forward towards a healthier nation.
