1st TARGET Workshop

The 1st TARGET workshop was held on 27th Sept 2015.

The TARGET Program
This program, Treatment and Relief of Gastrointestinal Disorders, was created by a panel comprising of gastroenterologists and hepatologists with a surgeon under the auspices of the Malaysian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (MSGH). Its main purpose is to provide updates to general practitioners (GPs) on how to effectively manage the various common conditions relating to gastroenterology that they may encounter in their daily practice. By conducting workshops in different venues around Malaysia, MSGH hopes that their key message will reach as many GPs possible and enable fruitful discussions and interactions.
