Welcome Message



It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2019 Annual Scientific Congress of the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists and the College of Anaesthesiologists (ASC of the MSA/CoA), to be held on 4th to 7th July 2019 at the Ipoh Convention Centre, Ipoh, Perak. This is the first time that the ASC has landed in Ipoh. I understand the Local Organising Committee is greatly excited to welcome fellow colleagues, associates and friends to Ipoh which is well known for its caves, food and culinary delights.

The Scientific Committee has aptly chosen the theme "Anaesthesia: Challenges in the 2020s" as we will soon march into the next decade. The scientific programme will consist of plenaries and concurrent symposia to be delivered by distinguished speakers from locally and abroad. There will also be pre-congress and intra-congress workshops to be conducted by renowned faculty and opportunities for oral and poster presentations.

Please mark down the date in your diary and come and join us for this annual event.

Dato' Dr Jahizah Hassan
Organising Chairperson
