Dear colleagues and friends,
As for the chairman of Malaysian Paediatric Cardiology Society (MPCS) Annual Scientific Meeting 2021, it is with great honour that I welcome you to this prestigious event. In line with the National Recovery Plan for Covid 19 pandemic as laid down by the government, we are conducting a virtual conference this year. An entirely new frontier for us as organising committee but we are definitely up for the challenge.
In line with the theme this year entitled “The Heart and Beyond”, we have prepared a series of online talks and symposiums looking at the heart from a multi-disciplinary perspective. We are still covering important cardiology topics like Tetralogy of Fallot, Kawasaki Disease and aortopathies but giving emphasis to genetic, neurologic, orthopaedic, respiratory and endocrinology. Our series of speakers comprise of senior paediatric cardiologists, paediatricians as well as our esteemed colleagues from Cardiothoracic Surgery, Anaesthesiology, Paediatric Respiratory, Genetics, Neonatology and others.
We have also selected research and cases to be presented as Moderated Posters, Interesting Cases and “Meet The Experts” sessions. This will provide a platform for up-and-coming medical officers and specialists as well as for paediatric cardiologists to share their researches. We are organising 2 pre-symposium virtual events (Paediatric Rhythm Symposium and Basic Echocardiography course) which will be beneficial to general doctors as well as paediatricians.
We do hope that MPCS ASM 2021 will continue to be a platform for friends and colleagues across the country and internationally to share knowledge, opinion and foster better working relationship within our fraternity.
I look forward to welcome you to MPCS ASM 2021.
With warm regards,
Dr. Johan Aref Jamaluddin
Paediatric Cardiology Virtual Symposium 2021 Chairman
