The RCP-Sunway-Cambridge seminars are supported by the Collaboration through a partnership with the Royal College of Physicians (RCP). These biannual seminars are hosted by Sunway with the aim of focusing on Continuing Medical Education (CME) for clinicians in Malaysia.   

During the COVID-19 global pandemic, the seminars moved to an online format. These taster webinars proved very popular and have enabled a global audience to engage with a snapshot of topics which will be revisited in more detail when in-person seminars resume.
