Sabah O&G Seminar 2006

O&G Dept. will organise the 7th (I think) Sabah O&G Seminar starting tomorrow. Hope the doctors there can give us an update.

Still in HUKM, finishing by 31st Dec, can't wait to start work in KK again.

Changes and new challenges

The next 2 months will see many changes occuring in Likas Hospital. 2 of our best MOs (Low and Lee) have left for KL to continue their masters. We hope they will come back to serve Sabah but two years is a long time, so we shall see.
3 of our senior most specialists (Dr Yong, Dr Hatta & Dr Cheong) are also leaving for subspeciality training. We wish them well and look forward to working with them again.
To quote VJ - the fellowship, while broken, remains. We have a great team here and no matter where our paths take us, i think ultimately, we will come back one day.
On a more cheerful note - the upcoming O&G Seminar - on Imaging In Obs and Gynae is something to look forward to. Scheduled for 23-25 November 2006, i think that all should attend. It's going to be a paradigm shift for the districts once MAs and nurses can do obstetric scans.

Hope to see all of you there.

Khaldoun Sharif's blog

Just stumbled upon this while surfing. It's "the" Khaldoun Sharif's blog. There's up to date info on the MRCOG exams and you can even email him to ask him stuff. It's really cool i think.
