A Short Emergency X-Ray Course (SEXY 2016) was held on the 29th of February 2016 at University Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Selayang Campus. A total of 40 participants attended the course. The morning session started off with a series of lectures by Radiologists, laying down the fundamentals of interpreting an emergency x-ray film. For the afternoon session, the participants were brought to the E-Resource Centre for a hands-on session. The Clinical Pearls & Pitfalls in interpreting an emergency x-ray film were discussed among the clinicians (Emergency Physician, General Surgeon, Orthopaedic Surgeon). The course ended at 5pm the same day.
We are a team of Emergency Physicians and Emergency Medicine Resident Trainees under the MARA University of Technology’s Faculty of Medicine. The team is split into two groups, one is currently attached to the Emergency & Trauma Department of Sungai Buloh Hospital, and another in Selayang Hospital’s Emergency & Trauma Department, servicing two of the busiest emergency departments in Klang Valley, Malaysia. The team also conducts undergraduate teachings, Basic Life Support Training and Clinical Research, just to name a few. As of currently, we have not opened up our postgraduate studies in emergency medicine, something which we are gearing up for in the near future.
