Event Updates - Hybrid Meeting

Due to the developments of the ongoing COVID-19 situation and as a precautionary measure, MUC2020 which is scheduled to be held in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah on the 26th to 28th November 2020 will be cancelled. MUC 2021 to be held at the same venue (I.e. Marriott Hotel, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah) next year in November 2021 (dates to be confirmed later).

MUA is instead organising a hybrid meeting that involves a small one-day face-to-face mini-MUC / Updates in Urology meeting at the end of November 2020 in Klang Valley (venue to be decided) during the same time as the cancelled MUC 2020 date. This hybrid meeting will also involve a one full day virtual meeting on 27th November 2020 before we proceed to have the one-day live physical meeting on 28th November 2020.

Despite the National Security Council (MSC) of Malaysia announcing that large gatherings are allowed with all safety precautions in place, the view is that safe air travel is still largely restricted and regulated. With potential need for quarantines and constant screening, we are not able to ensure that many participants will feel safe flying in from destinations outside of Malaysia. Thus, for international participants, you are welcome to join us virtually for the two days event. The face-to-face physical meeting will also be live streamed to registered participants via the Congress website. For our local participants, air travel within the country is allowed with no worries of quarantine requirements, thus your participation (virtually and physically) is greatly anticipated.

As for our nursing and allied health counterparts, there will not be a physical meeting per se. A short virtual meeting is currently being planned and will be hosted on the Congress website during the same period.

Further information on this Hybrid meeting will be announced by mid-August on the MUA website.

We hope that you understand the difficulties that the whole world is facing with this pandemic and we wish you all the best to stay safe and stay healthy. We look forward to welcoming you both virtually and physically to the first ever Hybrid Mini-MUC 2020.
