About the e-PMJ
The e-PMJ is a joint effort between the Postgraduate Medical Education Society (PGMES) of Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun (HRPB) and Clinical Research Centre (CRC) HRPB. The PGMES was first started in 1991 and officially registered in 1993.
In 1992, in support of promoting educational activity in HRPB (formerly known as Hospital Ipoh), the first edition of Medical Practice Hospital Ipoh was published, which was a compilation of full text research articles from HRPB. In 2007, Medical Practice Ipoh was renamed as Perak Medical Journal, reflecting a wider scope of the journal coverage.
In 1997, the journal was first indexed with the National Library of Malaysia. In 2019, the electronic version was published as e-PMJ. All articles published, including editorial and letters, represent the views of the authors and not necessarily those of the Editorial Board or the Ministry of Health.
We are grateful to the Director-General, Ministry of Health Malaysia for permission to publish the articles in the e-PMJ.
