Message from the Chairman of Council

  • Thuraiappah DM


The Journal of the Academy has come a long way. Over the years it has reflected the development of Primary Care Medicine i.e. general practice into a recognised speciality internationally. The Malaysian counterparts were among the very few around the world, who were the very early responders in leading Malaysia as one of the founder members of WONCA. Our leading general practitioners paved the way in Malaysia by the formation of the GP College in Malaysia and they have pioneered the speciality not only within the profession but also in the academic world.

The Journal therefore holds a special place in the hearts of general practitioners. The Council is glad to see that the Journal has kept pace with the world and is getting a new identity by doing Malaysia proud in calling it the Malaysian Family Physician.
