President’s message January -2015
Leaders may come and leaders may go from Indian Medical Association. However the National and State leaders through their leadership qualities inspired me to think of various ideas which I could deliver for the members who trusted me and gave this responsibilities with great expectations.
Continuous enhancement of our own scientific knowledge along with good communication skill is the need of today. I request all the branches to organize more CMEs and workshops. I appeal to all of my colleagues and fellow IMA members to participate in Accredited Scientific Programmes.
Even Medical Council of India, code of Medical Ethics, Section 1.2.3 says A Physician should participate in professional meetings as part of Continuing Medical Education Programmes, organized by reputed Professional Academic Bodies or any other authorized organizations.
To deliver the best to our IMA members, IMA Gujarat State Branch has started to prepare the list of faculties – subject wise. Please inform the office regarding the good faculties. I request the local branch Presidents and Hon. Secretaries to take advantage of this. I sincerely appeal to all the members to join IMA Knowledge – a scientific portal – an initiative of IMA HQ. This has many advantages for us. The major advantage is digitalization of all records with online credit of credit points. Each registered medical practitioner will be given his own login id & password.
Members can view their points from his own account. Member can send the relevant news, case reports, scientific materials for the portal. Congratulation to IMA Vadodara Team for initiation of awareness amongst its members regarding this Data Updation and IMA Knowledge portal.
