Presidential address – Dr. Madhav Bhat

5th April 2015
Respected Seniors and Dear colleauges

It is a great feeling to have a dialouge with you as the President of our prestigious society for the year 2015-2016. At the same time it makes me aware of the responsibilities of this post.  I am humbled by the honour bestowed on me!

My predecesors have worked hard to take our society to  great heights. I  know that we have to work hard to keep up with the high standards that our society has achieved. Being a strong believer of team work, I am confident  that as Team POS 2015-2016 we will do our best to meet the expectations of one and all.

As per the tradition,we have the first programme ‘Overcoming Obstacles- Current Practices in Ophthalmology’  on 2nd and 3rd May 2015 organised by National Institute of Ophthalmology.

Then, we have our oversees CME in Hongkong and Macau from 13th to 19th May.

We will welcome monsoon on 7th June with a programme ‘Oculoplasty for Everyone’ organised by Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital and Oculoplasty association of India.

Most awaited will be our conference in December 2015 in association with MOS. This year we are having a joint conferance with ISMSICS. This ‘Comprehensive Cataract Conference’  is joint 8th annual POS conference and 1st world congress of ISMSICS.

I am greatful to Dr.Meena Bhagali and the previous managing commitee to give us the freedom in planning this conferance well in advance.

I take this opportunity to request our seniors to get involved in the activities of our society. Their experience and guidance will be of immense importance to the young and enthusiastic ophthalmologists. This interaction will strengthen the ties and make POS a closely knit family!

Thanking you,
Yours truly,

Dr. Madhav Bhat
