DKSH Hosts Third Medical Congress MEDflix to Promote the Exchange of Knowledge Between Health Professionals

Inspired by the success of its previous series, DKSH Malaysia has launched MEDflix Vol. 3 – the third edition of the two-day virtual medical congress. The aim of the event is to continuously advance the medical knowledge among healthcare practitioners nationwide.

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, May 23, 2022 – DKSH Business Unit Healthcare, a leading partner for healthcare companies seeking to grow their business in Asia and beyond, has launched MEDflix Vol. 3 over the weekend. With the support from the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA), DKSH brought together approximately 2,300 healthcare professionals nationwide in pursuit of fostering knowledge-sharing across the medical community and facilitating conversations around medical research and healthcare approaches. 

Themed “Transitioning to Endemicity: Medical Updates”, MEDflix Vol. 3 was officiated by Dr. Koh Kar Chai, President of the MMA, and presented 17 interactive sessions conducted by medical and healthcare experts from various specialized fields, such as endocrinology, otorhinolaryngology, neurology, cardiology, geriatric, ophthalmology, and many more. With the support of the public and private healthcare partners, MEDflix Vol. 3 remained one of the biggest virtual healthcare congresses in Malaysia. 

The virtual multi-disciplinary medical congress was first launched in 2020, with the objective to keep healthcare professionals in Malaysia engaged and updated on the latest medical developments, as well as to facilitate collaboration within the healthcare community

Dr. Koh Kar Chai, President of MMA, said: “DKSH’s continuous effort in encouraging medical education is exemplary. It has been a challenge to provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation activities for healthcare professionals during the pandemic, but DKSH has crafted an interactive virtual experience, allowing more delegates from all around the country to participate and network with each other.”

Gary Chee, Vice President, Business Unit Healthcare, DKSH Malaysia, commented: “DKSH has always been committed to enriching people’s lives and improving the lives of every patient, every day, everywhere. We are truly grateful for the unwavering support from all our partners, and together, we will continue to support the advancement and knowledge exchange in the medical community with the aim of delivering high-quality and equitable healthcare standards for all Malaysians.”
