Visit to Malaysia

I've just returned from a visit to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia after being invited to act as an external examiner for the Master of Family Medicine programme run by the UKM (National University of Malaysia), UM (University of Malaya) and USM (Science University of Malaysia). Although the core of medical practice is similar across the world, there are striking differences in the organisation and delivery of health services between the UK and Malaysia. As well as examining, I was also able to give several lectures during my stay in Malaysia.
