Autograph signing session IMU Talk

This is a repeat, reminder notice.The humble Dr. Vagus (ahem) will be giving his 4th annual talk on posgraduate medical training in the United States. This talk will cover some of the processes in preparing and applying for training here, including the USMLE exams, searching for residency programs etc. In addition, I will be able to sign autographs for a small token.
I started this annual event after realizing how few resources there were for Malaysian medical students/doctors who wanted to learn more about the training system in North America. I cringe at my buddy who believed some rumor that you could have any friend or church pastor write you an offical letter of recommendation for residency! To think that silly boy is now a neph fellow! After finding out the hard way, I thought this would be useful for medical students and doctors curious about or comtemplating US specialty training; not meant to talk about the north American IMU-PMS.

Date: April 30th 2007 (possibility of 2nd talk in Seremban campus, but don’t bet on it yet. Home only for 12 days lah!)
Time: 10:30-11:30 am
Venue: International Medical University, Bkt Jalil Campus. Exact location within to be clarified.
Price: Free (or a Heineken, whichever comes first )

This year, the talk will be open to IMU students as well as outsiders. Outsiders will need to email Ms. Charmaine Khoo (no relation) of IMU to be registered to enable entry onto campus (include IC number). Parents of students are invited to attend as well. You may email me with questions about this talk as well. Please include vital statistics and colour photo :P
