The website offers live information about the Society and the resources available, both for members and non-members. It also allows for online communication with the Society, including applying for membership and research grants
It is a matter of privilege for me to be elected as the President of the vibrant society of national and international importance, the Endocrine Society of India. Ever since its inception, the society has evolved abundantly, been involved in advancing Indian endocrinology and has made tremendous progress in various fields, be it education, research, collaboration or public awareness. Today, we are a 1000-member organisation and intend to add more to this ever growing organisation.
As we move forward, there rests a huge responsibility on the shoulders of the working team, and my vision for the future encompasses not only carrying forward the programmes of the society which have garnered success in the past, but also to initiate some new ones bearing in mind the interests of the members. We wish to encourage more national and international interaction, especially in terms of clinical and translational research in endocrinology. We would also like to encourage and include active participation of the basic scientists in various aspects of endocrinology. These shall be part of our endeavour to foster interdisciplinary speciality programs and facilitate multi-centre collaborative research under the aegis of the Endocrine Society of India.
Another aspect that we wish to emphasise is the limited availability of Indian literature on various endocrine disorders, and provide impetus to generate nation-wide evidence on endocrine pathologies. This will be one of our strengths in the global arena and influence our clinical practice. The Society shall also plan to develop centres of excellence across the country under the banner of the Society in various types of endocrinological disorders.
