On behalf of the Organizing Committee of SURGERY UPDATE 2018, I have pleasure in informing you about the forthcoming 36th National Continuing Medical Education Program in Surgery in September. Over the years the program has become an integral part of the surgery postgraduate’s curriculum and we have so far always lived up to their expectations. The program has also benefited the practicing surgeons who have also participated in increasing numbers over the years. As always we look towards you to encourage your postgraduates and junior colleagues to be a part of this exercise and for their benefit we offer a plethora of interesting and pertinent surgical topics which we hope will enrich the delegates’ knowledge. We realize that this particular update has expectations of more demanding nature from the delegates and over the years we have tried to meet the high expectations delegates from all over India have from us. We are also continuously refining our teaching techniques and this year there will be state-of-the-art facilities on display. As always we are also going to bring out the Proceedings of the CME.
I am sure delegates will benefit immensely from the program and with your encouragement for the program, I look forward to seeing a large number of new faces this year also.
Head, Department of Surgery
