Esteemed members of ASI,
Surgical education, training and fellowship are the bedrock of ASI’s Golden mission since its humble inception in the year 1938. ASICON – 2018 will strive its best in furthering this vision by instilling the joy of learning and the spirit of fellowship.
By the will of my fellow surgeons I am here as the organising Chairman. “The old order changeth yielding place to new young”. I have deposed faith in the young, energetic, devoted team the responsibility and I am sure our mighty efforts will ignite the Association and all who serve it and the glow from this fire can really light the surgical world.
The best thing about the ASICON-2018 is that it is going to be held in Chennai, the head quarters of our mother Association. This will give the golden opportunity to the younger surgeons to visit and dedicate themselves to take the association to greater heights.
Traditional surgical training imparted by eminent mentors and trail-blazing role models, in the era of tremendous advances in technology and communication, its relevance in developing and safeguarding standard surgical care, and opportunity to connect to follow surgeons, will be given utmost priority in this conference so as to enhance professional competency and ethical conduct. I heartily welcome you all to this landmark conference at Chennai and also contribute your best to make this an exceptional and memorable event. Your dynamic participation and eminent contribution will greatly boost our energetic efforts in planning and sculpturing this conference of yours to an exceptional and fruitful one.
