Welcome to Medical Update Group

The Medical Update Group(MUG) was born in 1992 and resulted from a collaboration between Dr Keser Pillai and Dr Madho Jingree. Its objective has always been to provide continuing medical education to all doctors in Mauritius by organizing lectures, discussions and case presentations on topic which span all the medical specialities.

Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at the University of Mauritius. In addition to some excellent local speakers the Group has had the opportunity to welcome some intemationally known speakers who were visiting Mauritius.


In 1997 the Medical Update Group started a formal collaboration with the University of Mauritius through Dr Meera Manraj and Ms Annick Hebe. There have also been numerous other doctors who at some time: or other contributed sustantially of their time to help make MUG a success.Meetings are generously sponsored by practically all the Pharmaceutical Firms in the country; they help to pay for the rent of the Burrenchobay Hall where the meetings are held and also to appease our gastrointestinal tract once we have been intel1ectually satisfied. The current organizational committee of MUG consists of: Dr K Pillai, Dr M Manraj, Dr R Dhunny, Dr P Oogarah and Ms A Hebe. We encourage presentations from all categories of doctors; so far presentations have been mainly done by specialists but we would very much like to hear more from General Practitioners and Junior Hospital colleagues who are at the sharp end of the doctor-patient interface. The Medical Update Group will be 15 years old this year. To all of those who have helped the infant grow to adolescence through their contributions to and their attendance at the meetings, we say a heartfelt THANK YOU and hope tbat we will have more new blood joining MUG to help it stride forward into vigorous adulthood. ­

Doctors who have formed part of the MUG organizing committee at some time since its inception:
Dr S Ramtoolah
Dr P Lam Thuon Mine
Dr S Gunness
Dr Z Aumeerally
Dr S Ng Cheung Hin
