Covid-19 & Surgery: Roadmap to Recovery - Hong Kong, India and Malaysia

30th March 2021


Join us for the first webinar hosted by the RCSEd International Office. There can be no doubt that responding to COVID-19 has been the greatest test for healthcare systems, including surgical services, across the globe. This initial session will focus on gaining perspective and learnings from three neighbouring countries by understanding their experiences in managing the impact and response to surgical service challenges during COVID-19. To further curb the impact of the pandemic globally, the current strategy is the implementation of a successful vaccination program, but this raises the question, when will the world get back to ‘normal’?

Hosted by three expert speakers covering in detail the challenges of COVID within Hong Kong, India and Malaysia, this is a webinar not to be missed.


Our panellists include:

  • Professor Paul LAI Bo San (Hong Kong) - "How Covid-19 Affects the Surgical Services and Landscape"
    Professor and Division Chief of the Hepato-biliary and Pancreatic Surgery Division at the Department of Surgery and Director of the Office of Medical Education, Faculty of Medicine at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
  • Professor Sudha Seshayyan (India) - "Will We Get Back To Normal After a Successful Vaccination Program"
