College of Anaesthesiologists
The College of Anaesthesiologists, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia, was originally inaugurated as the Chapter of Anaesthesiologists on 16 December 1995. The College is the "academic arm" of anaesthesiologists in the country, and has as its primary objective the advancement of the art and science of anaesthesia and related disciplines.
The Council of the College handles the day-to-day management while academic activities are usually delegated to the Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Each SIG has a Convenor assisted by an expert panel.
The activities of the College include:
Credentialing and Accreditation
Development of Consensus Statements, Clinical Practice Guidelines and Standards of Care
Quality Assurance and Clinical Audit
Organisation of Sub-specialty Scientific meetings
Liaison with sister organisations overseas
Assisting in the facilitation of postgraduate training
The College works closely with the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists, organising events for the benefit of the profession as a whole.
