East Coast Surgical Symposium 2013 (ECSS 2013)
‘The Role of a General Surgeon in the Era of Sub-Specialization’
The 5th East Coast Surgical Symposium will focus on the role of General Surgeons and Specialists in the era of sub-specialization.  General surgeons have traditionally handled a wide spectrum of surgical conditions. Vascular, urology, trauma, hepatobiliary, upper GI and colorectal Surgical patients are still managed by general surgeons in most hospitals in Malaysia.  This situation may change in the future with provision for development of sub-specialization.  Till this becomes a reality, the General Surgeons in most district level hospitals should be familiar with common problems encountered in various subspecialties. To address this issue the organizing committee has prepared a very attractive and informative programme to update general surgeons towards better patient care and enhance quality. 
We have gathered both local and national speakers in these fields to share their experiences and knowledge in this rewarding event.
An outstanding two-days program that will discuss on common problems applicable to General Surgeons, General practitioners with a surgical interest, Medical Officers and Registrars.
