Announcement: Cardiology Update 2007

Cardiology Update 2007: Acute Coronary Syndrome


To all 2nd, 3rd and 4th year USM master students (Emergency Medicine) posted in USM!!

This one day conference is jointly organized by the Cardiology Unit, Universiti Sains Malaysia and the Emergency Medicine Department, Universiti Sains Malaysia , with a kind unrestricted educational grant from Bristol-Myers Squibb (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. and Sanofi-Aventis (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.

In view of the limited number of seats available to us (this conference is also opened to other departments), at the moment, we are inviting all 2nd, 3rd and 4th year USM master students of emergency medicine posted in USM, to participate in this conference. I am still trying my best to cater for 1st year master students as well.

Also because of the limited seats, please confirm with me ( or 60199869520) whether you are able to make it or not because we don't want to deprive those who want to go.

Participation Fee *(inclusive of materials, notes, meals): RM 0 (FREE !!!)
