However, most of the notes are based on my experience while working in Ampang Hospital, and may vary in your own healthcare centre.

Hopefully it may serve as a guide for your Orthopedic posting!

Good Luck for your next posting!

Workshop 2009/10 Handouts

HOW was established in the summer of 2009, founded by Dr. Christopher Sheng and Dr. Ng Kean Seng.

Our objectives were clear, to collect and compile as much details and experiences possible on the Housemanship service in Malaysia. Clearly, a lot of us overseas graduates are not used to the local system and methods. Terms may differ and protocols vary.

Here, you may download the guides completed by doctors of the House Officers Workshop. Please note that these guides were done by medical students and serves as a guide only. Hopefully, these materials will assist you during your Housemanship service!

1. Obstetrics and Gynaecology

2. Medicine 

3. Paediatrics

4. Orthopaedics

5. Surgery

6. Guide Medicine Workshop

7. General List of Recommended Antibiotic

8. Medical abbreviations

This video is part of a 1 month workshop stint conducted by members of HOW and also volunteers who were referred to as “mentors”. Our mentors were trained during workshops like these, and then started training other participants of a second workshop opened to any students of CSMU interested. The response was great. After completion of the workshop, participants were then tested on knowledge and skills acquired during the 2 months of training.

This mentor system, developed by President Dr. Goh and his central committee, was different from the previous years, where lectures and seminars were conducted once a week instead. Demonstrations were conducted, and guides issued to participants. Lectures and workshops sometimes lasted a whole day.

Goh decided that as most of the major topics were discussed before, this year’s the goal was to focus on clinical examination and clerking skills.

All the examinations were derived from videos from local Malaysian medical schools, international videos on youtube, and guides from previous elective postings of CSMU students. So it’s safe to say, they will provide the basic examination skills a houseman requires, if mastered.

The last batch of CSMU students have graduated, but HOW will continue to deliver information and guides on our blog.

We would like to welcome any house men, medical officers or specialist to contribute and comment on our collected information and guides. Hopefully, this project will reduce the number of incompetent doctors in the future as claimed.
