Evidence Based Complementary Medicine

Dear Medical Students,

In the recent Malaysian National Health and Morbidity Survey, it shows that around 40% of Malaysians will seek traditional or complementary medicine before seeking you, a practitioner of Allopathic (western) medicine. This means almost 4 out of 10 patients that you encounter in your future practice may be a believer of complementary medicine.

SMMAMS is dedicated to making you a better doctor. We are sponsoring 10 medical students (worth RM100 per seat) for a Seminar of Evidence Based Complementary Medicine, on the 30th of October, in Vistana Hotel, KL. Lunch provided.

In this Seminar, you will gain exposure on complementary medicine in Malaysia, as well as know which Complementary Medicines are Evidence Based, as patients may ask your opinion on complementary medicine.

Date : 30.10.10
Time : 8.30am to 4.30pm
Venue : Vistana Hotel, Kuala Lumpur
Criteria : MMA Medical Student members (if you are not a member, you can sign up now)

1) Name
2) IC Number
