6th APPCRC in conjunction with FM Symposium

 

Held over 3 days from 21-23 September, this is the 1st time that the conference is jointly held and organised by the College of Family Physicians Singapore (CFPS) and the SingHealth Duke-NUS Family Medicine Academic Clinical Program (FM ACP).

There are several eminent plenary speakers, who had delivered across 6 wide-ranging keynote lectures, including healthy living, family medicine as a career, doing complex trials in primary care, developing capabilities in health profession education, health services research, and developing the next generation of practitioners.

The research championship continues to be a key feature of the conference. There were a total of 9 teams competing, guided by experienced researchers to develop their research ideas into viable projects.

During the conference, GOH Associate Professor Kenneth Mak, Deputy Director of Medical Service (Health Services Group, Ministry of Health, also announced that College of Family Physicians Singapore (CFPS) will enhance its Family Medicine training programmes in areas such as chronic disease meagement, mental health and geriatrics. There has been an increase in enrolment of Family Medicine training programmes, and that is encouraging progress towards the vision of "One Singaporean, One Family Physician".
