MyHPB 2020

Welcome Message from Organizing Chairman

Good day my fellow friends in the Hepatopancratobiliary field.  It is my great honour and pleasure to invite you to attend the MyHPB 2020 Conference to be held on the 5th of December 2020.

MyHPB 2020 Conference will be the first in many aspects. It is the first conference organized by the new MyHPBS (Malaysia Society of Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgeons); also incorporating the 5th installment of the HPB Update Symposium, a popular annual symposium over the pass years.  Due to the Covid pandemic and traveling restriction, MyHPB 2020 will be held online, a first virtual HPB conference organized in Malaysia. This will also be the first time we are hosting a pre-and post- conference laparoscopic workshop for our surgeons and surgeons to be.

The aim of the symposium is to facilitate knowledge sharing and skill exchange in a safe, efficient and convenient platform. Hence, MyHPB 2020 Conference will bring together esteemed faculties and speakers from China, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, Philippine, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia to share their experiences and latest developments in HPB surgeries.

On behalf of MyHPBS Society, I welcome you to join MyHPB 2020 and I assure you that you will enjoy the scientific programs organized.
