The Australian College and The Malaysian Academy have enjoyed a long and useful relationship since the late 70's. Datuk Assoc.prof (B) Dr. DM Thuraiappah who is the AFPM Organising Committee Chair welcomes the international flavour of the conference. The London College of Clinical Hypnosis (Malaysia) is proud to be part of the joint conference designed to forster stronger ties and share scientific knowledge and learning.
The AFPM is the organization in Malaysia which provides for professional development and continued medical education of the general practitioners. By providing this service of continuing education, the AFPM endeavours to improve the quality of healthcare delivery and is therefore concerned with higher quality of health of the people of Malaysia.
The AFPM promotes the concept of "One Family One Doctor" for Malaysians to support continuity of care.
The career improvement is self-fulfilling and creates a ladder to give young general practitioners a goal to reach. Simultaneously the self education enhances the practice of medicine to a better future.
Regular programmes are provided for the updating of our teachers, training of mentors and researchers, presentation at international conferences, the hosting of educational workshops which are rated and recognized by academicians internationally. This Academy therefore provides the backbone of quality primary healthcare delivery in Malaysia.
All categories of membership are eligible to benefit from reduced fees for courses, conferences, seminars. Members will also receive our newsletter, journal and enjoy the fellowship of doctors to enhance knowledge and comradeship.
