MPS-YPC-MALAYSIAN CLINICAL PHARMACY SYMPOSIUM (MCPS) REPORT
It has only been less than a week since the inaugural Malaysian Clinical Pharmacy Symposium (MCPS) has concluded but we are sure that the knowledge and experience shared by the esteemed speakers still linger in the audience's hearts and minds.
MCPS is an event which aims to bridge the knowledge gap between junior and experienced pharmacists.
We certainly hope that this would mark the beginning of something promising, and would like to thank all parties involved in making this event a successful one, and hope that it has left an impact on those who have attended.
The event is organised by Chong Chin Pin and his team, supported by our Quality & Performance Director - Ms Lim Xiang Yin at Wisma MPS.
