MESSAGE FROM the PRESIDENT
Dear members of the Endocrine Society of India
I am indebted to all of you for choosing me as President of our Society for year 2017. I am proud of taking the position of an academic society which has taken a giant leap of progress in past decade. All should applaud but the echo is to be perceived as message to responsibly take more action on many fronts. Furthering research in endocrinology by collaborating with basic scientists, disseminating knowledge among members and physicians by organizing CMEs, preparing management guidelines of endocrine disorders which are relatively common to improve patients’ care and allowing younger members to interact with seniors professionally and socially. We should also initiate exchange programs with the Endocrine societies of neighboring countries and for this I would expect my executive members to expedite the process.
After assuming my office my own priorities are initiation of developing center of excellence in endocrinology at various centers in the country, organizing webinar for members to discuss interesting endocrine cases from various centers involved in endocrine training and lastly preparing management guidelines for endocrine disorders. The center of excellence will also operate physician’s referral program. For this action to materialize I request all my colleagues to communicate to me personally for their suggestions and thoughts. I would be more than obliged to them in this endeavor.
With my best wishes to all the members.
Dr SK Singh
