​The Department of Paediatrics of the Khoo Teck Puat – National University Children's Medical Institute, National University Hospital, is proud to present the Wong Hock Boon Paediatric Masterclass Webinar: Pearls in Paediatrics on 31 October 2020.

Held annually since 2011, this event focuses on general and sub-specialty paediatrics, continuing in the long tradition of excellent teaching from the department and honoring the legacy of our founding professor, Emeritus Professor Wong Hock Boon. The event has become a key platform for local and regional healthcare professionals to connect and share updates in the field of paediatrics.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and travel restrictions, we have decided to bring this event onto the digital platform to be able to reach out to healthcare professionals beyond our shores.

Following the success of our COVID-19 webinar in April, we are proud to present a half-day session focussing on key paediatric topics ranging from gastroenterology, endocrinology to pulmonary medicine.

Our department's senior clinicians will be sharing insights and updates in their respective fields, relevant to general practitioners and paediatricians alike.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to this year's virtual Wong Hock Boon Paediatric Masterclass Webinar!
