President's Message

Message from the President-Elect 2018 – 2019

It is a great honour to be given the opportunity to serve as the 40th President of the Malaysian Society of Otorhinolaryngologists – Head & Neck
Surgeons (MSO-HNS) for the year of 2019-2020. I would be installed on 20th June 2019. I would like to express my heartiest gratitude to all the members who had supported, encouraged and elected me. I will keep my promise to lead the Society to another level, together with the soon to be elected Executive Committee members for 2019-2020. I would also like to congratulate Dr Kong Min Han and his team for their endless commitment and dedication to our Society during their term in 2018-2019.
Our Society has grown steadily for the past 39 years. Our members with
subspeciality training in otology, neurotology, rhinology, skull base
surgery, head & neck surgery, laryngology and paediatric ENT have also
increased significantly. The responsibility and the role of our Society have
evolved and so has the expectations of the members. We are now one of
the chapters of the College of Surgeons and we are looking forward to
form the College of Otorhinolaryngologists – Head & Neck Surgeons
(ORL-HNS), under Academy of Medicine of Malaysia. Formation of the
College of ORL-HNS will definitely make the ORL-HNS fraternity better
represented in the medical fraternity of Malaysia.
During my term as President, I will continue to organise annual activities
for our Society such as nationwide ENT primary care updates, annual
ENT health camps, annual ENT retreats and of course annual ORL-HNS

the members as in previous year and I will continue to liaise with the
College of Surgeons regarding the formation of College of ORL-HNS,
under the Academy of Medicine.
2020 will be an exciting year for MSO-HNS! The 12th Malaysian
International ORL-HNS Congress & 40th Annual General Meeting of
MSO-HNS will be held in conjunction with the 9th World Congress for
Endoscopic Surgery of the Paranasal Sinuses, Skull Base, Brain and Spine
from 15th to 18th July 2020 at Shangri-la Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. The short
form of the event is “ENDOKL2020”. We are especially proud and
delighted that this is the first time this prestigious congress is held in
Asia. The Neurosurgical Association of Malaysia (NAM) will hold their
congress with us simultaneously too! The organising committee
member of ENDOKL2020 was formed in the early 2018 before we took
over from the committee of Endo Barcelona 2018. We have assiduously
lined up a four day programme with keynotes, plenary lectures, live
cadaveric dissection demonstrations, round table discussions, meet the
expert sessions, oral presentations and posters with generous
contributions from both world renowned international and local faculty
members. First official announcement of the event will be on 20th June Stay tuned!
Lastly, I would like to pledge and encourage all the members to join us
in the activities that we are going to organise and give us positive
suggestions and feedbacks to improve and bring a good name to

‘Simple, Fast, Accurate & Precise’
Thank you very much.
Professor Dr Tang Ing Ping
