From The Secretary's Desk
Greetings from the desk of the Secretary BOS 2019-20.
This year the Bangalore Orthopaedic Society is in for an academic feast. Commencing in the month of April with the IOA PG teaching program as it’s first activity, the year has churned out one international meet after another. The monthly meetings are themed, the lunch is themed and so will be the annual BOSCON in the month of March 2020. Underlying the year’s planning is the masterly patronage of the senior members of the Department of Orthopaedics at Ramaiah Medical College and Hospitals and a chosen theme of “Ideate, Innovate, Inspire”.
It is a great honour to be the Secretary of an august body of Orthopaedic Surgeons and I am thankful to all for having given me this opportunity. I hope to live up to the expectations of the members and the seniors and steer the society to newer heights. My heartfelt thanks to all the members of the Executive committee and also the Scientific committee who are making this possible.
We have commenced two long term fellowships under the BOS banner, one in Ilizarov methodology and one in Spine surgery and are happy to announce that the same are in great demand, with 3 candidates already benefiting from it.
In addition, the previous year’s initiative of Young Scholar Program continues, allowing the younger members to choose a short term observership with a mentor of their choice from a group of select institutions.
Looking forward to a wonderful year 2019-20. Long live the Bangalore Orthopaedic Society!!!
