Dear all, thank you for the good response and support till date.
We now look forward to seeing you in Penang soon!
The Advanced Medical & Dental Institute (AMDI) , Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM)welcomes you to AMDI’s First International Oncology Symposium held together with The 10th International Seminar on Medical Physics co-organised by Malaysian Association of Medical Physicists (MAMP).
As the understanding of knowledge and clinical applications in the field of Oncology and Medical Physics undergoes rapid developments, it is vital for clinicians and health professionals who are involved in cancer care gets the best updates from the reknown international and local speakers. The sharing of knowledge and the enhancement of networks would improve patient care and produce best treatment plans for our patients.
The theme of the International Oncology Symposiym is The Way Forward in Multimodality and Targeted Therapies while the theme for the International Seminar on Medical Physics is Fostering Medical Physics Research and Clinical Practicefor Better Healthcare.
Rationale of the theme
Cancer care is nonetheless multidisciplinary and the treatment is getting more and more precise.
It involves oncologists, surgeons, physicians, pathologists, radiologists, medical physicists, cancer scientists, and all other allied health professionals. Delivering treatments that requires multimodality therapy is the hallmark to gauge how close the network relations are between these cancer care providers. An optimal multidisciplinary concerted effort shall translate into optimising patient care.
Hence, the symposium aims to provide a platform to all stakeholders in cancer care recent updtes especially in the treatments that crucially requires multimodality and multidisciplinary approaches.
