Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organising Committee, I am very delighted to welcome you to the 18th Malaysian Congress of Geriatric Medicine (MCGM) 2023 at Setia City Convention Center (SCCC), Shah Alam, Malaysia. We extend our hearty welcome to you, as our special guests, to experience the exciting venture of the new Setia City Convention Centre, a wide variety of indoor and outdoor venues. Strategically located in the heart of Setia Alam Township and easily accessed through the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE).

As the global pandemic shifted dynamically to endemic, we eventually decided on the face-to-face conference, to make it a successful event for all conference participants. Along with the 3rd Malaysian Falls Prevention Scientific Meeting, this scientific meeting is an important collaboration with allied health and the multidisciplinary unit that has been actively improving and developing the best care for our elderly population.


Our theme is "Embracing the Landscape in Geriatric Medicine" and we plan to go above and beyond your expectations. Our 2023 conference vision is to discuss important future issues, share ideas and information, and accelerate innovation. More importantly, we will spread the latest geriatric care and management results through communications and networking around Asia. On this road, a new group of the new batch of geriatric specialists and trainees holding on to the port to steer into the coming Silver Tsunami.

In close collaboration with geriatricians from all around Malaysia, we ensure this would be the biggest gathering of many healthcare professionals both in the government and private sector. To have a balanced view of a such paradigm shift, esteemed Plenary Keynote speakers are invited from industry and academia collaboration with many other disciplines not just medicine.

I would like to thank many people who made their indelible contributions to the success of this flagship conference.

Last, but not least, on behalf of the Malaysian Society of Geriatric Medicine (MSGM), I would also like to express sincere and special thanks to the committee team, which has shown great support to this flagship event.


I hope you will benefit from this top-notch flagship conference and enjoy networking with colleagues from across the globe for future collaboration globally. Especially, the venue SCCC is located in the new Setia Alam district which is the most modern part of the city. You can easily explore the peaceful calmer side of Klang Valley. Transportation is clean, safe, and convenient.

Wishing you all to join us to make MCGM 2023 a successful event.


With best regards,
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nor Izzati Binti Saedon
