It gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 8th Asia Pacific Primary Care Research Conference (APPCRC). This regional Academic Family Medicine conference is organized alternatively by the Singaporean and Malaysian professional colleges and university departments of family medicine. For the 8th APPCRC, the host will be Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine with the theme of “Creativity and Excellence in Family Medicine”. This conference is multidisciplinary and brings together clinicians, educators and researchers at all stages of their careers. It will provide excellent opportunities for networking and sharing your ideas in a constructive and supportive environment.

Original plans for the 8th APPCRC were postponed due to the COVID pandemic but we are now able to proceed with a hybrid event, with a digital interface to Singapore for those that cannot travel. The conference will provide plenty of opportunities for presentation and discussion with colleagues.

We would love to hear from you soon.
