TIME BOMB - MMIIreland Conference 2017

1st April

Biomedical Science Institute, Trinity College Dublin

Admission: €12 , Group rates available

In Malaysian Medics International Ireland (MMII)'s very first active year, we are presenting MMII Conference 2017. The theme of our very first MMII Dublin Conference is ‘Time Bomb’.

Time Bomb signifies urgency, epidemic and high-pressure situations that we will often face as medics. It represents the limited time we have to save a patient in an acute situation, a growing epidemic or even the limited time we have in life, encouraging us to maximise whatever time we have left. 

Along with the theme of the conference, there will be 4 featured talks demonstrating different perspective and interpretation of the theme. Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, to provoke conversations that matter. Speakers will be there to connect with the audience- be it through humour, eye contact or simply by just speaking frankly.

There will be a booth during the lunch break displaying volunteering and research opportunities, in which interested participants can obtain more details from MMII members. Later in the day, there will be a chance for everyone to get off their feet to engage in an exciting pursuit for the truth behind the death of Uncle Soon. Who is Uncle Soon? Come and you will find out soon.

Tickets available through Eventbrite.
