Welcome Message


On behalf of the organising committee I would like to warmly welcome you to the Malaysian Thoracic Society Congress 2013. Dr Fauzi Anshar and Dr Asiah Kassim have put up an exciting scientific program together, which will cater for all participants attending the congress. The scientific programme will cover clinical topics, basic sciences and the latest advancements in respiratory diseases.

We have invited many renowned international and local speakers who are experts in their field. There will also be a symposium specifically for Allied Health Professionals to address issues relevant to their practice. The clinical grand round this year will also include community-based cases delivered by primary care physicians.

There will also be a pre-congress postgraduate workshop in UMMC to cater for junior doctors keen on updating themselves in the management of common respiratory diseases.

For the last few years we have seen a significant number of abstracts being submitted for the congress, which reflects well on the future of Respiratory Medicine research. I would like to encourage researchers to submit abstracts of their research work and the best five abstracts will be included in the oral presentation.

I would also like to take this opportunity to convey my appreciation to our co-organiser, the Lung Foundation of Malaysia, the organizing committee who has been working tirelessly to ensure the success of this congress and to our industry partners for their financial support.

We are looking forward to meeting you in June 2013 and wish you all an enjoyable event.

Assoc Prof Dr Tengku Saifudin Tengku Ismail
Organising Chairman MTS 2013
