The Malaysian Thoracic Society (MTS) is pleased to announce that new CPD online modules have been added on its Education website.

The three new modules are from video recording of lectures during a webinar on “Managing Airway Diseases: Guidance During a Pandemic” held on 9th May 2020.

Registered Medical Practitioners who register on the website will be awarded 1 CPD point per module upon completion.  The CPD points will be accredited directly into their Malaysian Medical Association CPD mobile application since the MTS Education website is linked to the MMA CPD Portal via API (Application Programming Interface).  The MTS wishes to thank the Malaysian Medical Association for this collaborative effort to make online CPD more accessible to doctors.
