Our President joined representatives from the Malaysian Urological Association and Ministry of Health in congratulating new Fellows and Members

The College celebrated the achievements of 21 Fellows and Members in Malaysia on Tuesday (21 November) at a Diploma Ceremony in Kuala Lumpur.

The special ceremony at Selayang Hospital brought together new Fellows and Members specialising in urology for a formal welcome to the College community.

The College also cemented its long-standing relationship with Malaysia with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the Malaysian Urological Association.

Congratulating the diplomates, Mike McKirdy, President of the College, said: “It is an enormous pleasure to be here in Malaysia for this important event and to have the opportunity to welcome our newest Fellows and Members to the College.

“As a UK-based Royal College with a global outlook, we are incredibly proud of our international community, and I’m delighted that we have more than 300 Fellows and Members in Malaysia.

“The College motto, conjurat amice – ‘together in friendship’ – feels very fitting today, and I would like to warmly congratulate each and every one of our Diplomates.”

The event was attended by Noor Ashani, President of the Malaysian Urological Association, Grenville Oades, Lead Examiner for the College’s special FRCS Urology exam, and Rohan Malek, Local FRCS Urology Exam Convener.
