Program Overview

With more than 30 medical institutions in Malaysia and 3,000 medical students graduating annually, there is a strong need to ensure that medical graduates are work ready by the time they leave their alma mater.

This one and a half day conference targets work readiness amongst medical students with focus on professionalism issues, patient safety, student resilience and mental wellbeing. It is delivered by experienced local and international academics through a series of keynote lectures, plenaries, interactive forum and workshops.

YBhg. Dato' Dr. Haji Azman Bin Abu Bakar, the Deputy Director-General of Health (Medical), Ministry of Health Malaysia will be officiating the Opening Ceremony and also participating as a panellist at the “Forum on Work Readiness Among Medical Graduates”.
