The RCSEd International Office in Kuala Lumpur was delighted to welcome College Vice-President Professor Graham Layer on 25 July 2018. It was his first visit since its opening early this year. We welcomed his support and discussed the future of RCSEd. The visit included a networking dinner with the British High Commission that was attended by Stephen Hill and Tan Karr Wei, College of Surgeons Malaysia, Professor April Camilla Roslani and the RCSEd International Adviser Professor Dato’ Dr Hanafiah Harunarashid who is also the President of the College of Surgeons of Malaysia.

During this visit, Professor Layer met a Malaysian trainee who has obtained a place as Clinical Fellow in the UK under the IMGSS Scheme, Ms Ruhi Fadzlyana Jailani. She will undergo training in colorectal surgery for one year at NHS Tayside, Ninewells Hospital under the supervision of Ms Dorin Ziyaei. Ms Ruhi said: 

“RCSEd has been very helpful and resourceful in guiding me through my IMGSS application. The International Office has assisted me in ensuring all documents reached RCSEd in a timely manner. I truly appreciate and acknowledge all the given assistance.” 

The Vice-President encouraged trainees from South East Asia to join the College as affiliates. The International Office will continue to support the current membership and promote surgical fraternity as part of the global network of RCSEd in the hope of furthering the position and the role of the International Office in becoming a hub for RCSEd’s membership and activities in the ASEAN region.
