Organising Committee

A very warm welcome to friends, colleagues and fellow rheumatologists to our Island City Singapore.  2019 will mark the 20th Singapore Society of Rheumatology – Malaysian Society of Rheumatology (SSR-MSR) Workshops in Rheumatology. 


Since the first workshop in 1998, the meeting has served as a focal point for the exchange of ideas, wisdom and knowledge between members of the two societies and our international faculty. Additionally, it is a key educational event for our local and regional rheumatology trainees. Most importantly, it is a gathering of friends.

The theme for our conference this year is on “The Road Travelled, To The Way Ahead”, with a focus on advances in the field of the inflammatory arthritides, Sjögren’s syndrome and rheumatic disease in pregnancy. I am honoured to introduce our distinguished group of international and local faculty for this workshop, they will be covering a wide range of topics in rheumatology immunology; from the bench to the bedside.


The 20th Workshops in Rheumatology will be the inaugural meeting to be held in Singapore’s 3rd and newest medical school, the Lee Kong Chian – Nanyang Technical University (LKC-NTU) School of Medicine, at the Novena campus, Clinical Sciences Building. In this state of the art campus, I am confident that this meeting will facilitate interaction and collaboration between clinicians and scientists, and at the same time rejuvenate professional fellowship, twenty years in the making.
