A year gone by: Much more needs to be done

Health Care Comments Off

Today is the last day of the year 2016 and as we stand on the threshold of a new year, it’s usual to take stock of the year gone by and reflect upon what we have been able to achieve.

It’s also a time when we look ahead to the New Year, full of hope and determination to further achieve our goals.

My journey with the IMA has been more than two decades long. And, over these years, I have taken on progressing roles in the Association culminating in my role as the National President. It’s a role that brings with it huge responsibilities and challenges and as I embark on this new journey, I do so with your support and contributions.

The strength of IMA lies in our unity and common commitment for the betterment of our profession, regarded perhaps the most noble of all professions.

True to the theme ‘IMA 1 Voice’, I am sure that we can all speak as ‘one’ for the best interests of the medical community and also give it a global platform. IMA is the largest and a recognized association of professional doctors and one of the biggest medical NGOs in the world and is therefore a stakeholder in national health related issues and policies.

Mattie Stepanek, an American poet and peace activist, who died at a young age of 13, said, “Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.”

Let’s together take IMA to even greater heights… My best wishes to you for a healthy, happy and successful new year 2017…

Final Clarification regarding PC&PNDT registration of a person having done MBBS & other PG Degrees Withdrawal of earlier circular with error dated 23rd December and circulation of corrected circular

Health Care Comments Off

An e-circular dated 23rd December, 2016 was mailed to IMA members on the above said subject. This circular inadvertently carried a factual error.

In a line in the e-circular as follows: “This affidavit needs to be submitted with the application for PNDT Registration. However, they may NOT be permitted to carry out ANC Ultrasound”, the word ‘NOT’ had been missed out, which completely altered the meaning of the sentence. The final and corrected version may kindly be noted.

This circular was published in All IMA Google Groups and eIMA.

The error and confusion caused is sincerely regretted

The corrected notification is as below.
