Asia Reunions 2017

20 March 2017

RCSI's St Patrick's Day celebrations kicked-off in Singapore on the 15th March 2017 with a reception hosted by the Ambassador of Ireland to Singapore, Geoffrey Keating and attended by 60 alumni, Fellows and Members.

From there, celebrations moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a two-day RCSI reunion that was attended by more than 90 alumni, Fellows and Members from RCSI Dublin and the first graduating class of PU-RCSI. This, the first reunion in KL in 17 years, welcomed local Malaysian alumni and also those who travelled from Ireland, Northern Ireland, Sri Lanka and Australia to be there for the occasion.

A scientific meeting, led by RCSI alumni and surgeons, commenced the programme which was followed by an informal Malaysian supper in Bijan Restaurant, and culminated on day two with a large RCSI cohort in attendance at the 92nd Annual Ball of the St Patrick's Society of Selangor. A terrific end to a wonderful St Patrick's Day weekend!
