Description

8th Wong Hock Boon Paediatric Masterclass

The Department of Paediatrics, National University Hospital, Singapore, is proud to present the 8th Wong Hock Boon Paediatric Masterclass from 23 - 25 August 2019.

Held annually since 2011, this event focuses on general and sub-specialty paediatrics, continuing in the long tradition of excellent teaching from the department and honoring the legacy of our founding professor, Emeritus Professor Wong Hock Boon.

This year, our Wong Hock Boon professors – invited speakers of international standing – are in Paediatric Cardiology (Professor Zahid Amin, Children's Hospital of Georgia) and Paediatric Sleep Medicine (Professor Judith Owens, Boston Children's Hospital) respectively. They will be joined by the department's own clinicians who will be speaking in their respective fields. The event has become a key platform for local and regional healthcare professionals to connect and share updates in the field of paediatrics.

We will also be organising a Pre-Masterclass Paediatric Sleep workshop on 23 August which will feature esteemed clinicians in the field and include content related to Sleep and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea in children.

The well-received Paediatric Secrets session on Saturday morning will comprise a series of case-based interactive teaching sessions designed especially for students and residents. Each session will provide tips and approaches to diagnoses as well as instruction about common problems in each area. For the first time, we will also have a morning of insightful talks by our healthcare professionals focused on managing adolescents on key issues such as eating disorders and Internet addiction.

Guided tours to the newly-opened NUHkids Specialist Centre (KTP-NUCMI) will take place on Saturday afternoon as well.

We are also proud to present the well-received debate series on the final day of the Masterclass, 25 August. This debate will see two esteemed clinicians pit their skills and clinical know-how against each other on a general paediatric topic, making for an engaging and entertaining session.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to this year's Wong Hock Boon Paediatric Masterclass!
