Message from the Chairman of the Dermatology Chapter

The 1st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Dermatology Chapter was held at the T.J Danaraj Auditorium, Faculty of Medicine, University Malaya on 6th - 7th July 2019. It was a tremendous success based on feedbacks from delegates, exhibitors and the secretariat.  

We are pleased to inform you that the 2nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Dermatology Chapter will be held in Women and Children Hospital, Hospital Kuala Lumpur from 22nd – 23rd February 2020.  This meeting is held in collaboration with the Paediatric Dermatology Unit Hospital Kuala Lumpur. The theme of the meeting is "New Advances in Pediatric and Humanitarian Dermatology” incorporating “1st National Pediatric Dermatology Congress”. Our guest speakers are  Jennifer Huang MD and Jennifer Tan MD from the Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA

It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone to the 2nd Annual Scientific Meeting. It is well timed we have chosen Women and Children Hospital, Kuala Lumpur as our venue. The Hospital was only officially  opened in 2019. This would be a premier academic meeting for pediatric dermatologists, dermatologists, pediatricians, specialists, trainees, medical officers and general practitioners to update themselves with the latest advances in the field of pediatric dermatology and humanitarian dermatology.

I would like to extend my gratitude to our organising committee especially  our scientific chairpersons Dr Sabeera Begum and Dr Leong Kin Fon, and the secretariat for all their good work in putting together this meeting. Finally, a word of special thanks to our speakers, our delegates, our exhibitors, PDM, HKL  and Harvard Dermatology who make this meeting possible.
