First of all, let me extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for electing me as the President of our esteemed society for 2020-21. This year is an extremely crucial year because of our National Conference at Mumbai and now due to the new global epidemic of COVID-19.
As you know, Bombay Orthopaedic Society is the most coveted and respected organization for the Orthopaedic fraternity all over our country. Everyone looks forward to our courses, meetings and the way we handle it in a professional way. Hence this tradition continues even during difficult situations this year.
As the new academic year dawns in, we are faced with a unique set of challenges. The Bombay Orthopaedic Society enters its 55th year and it's our privilege to be the hosts of the Indian Orthopaedic Association's Annual Conference in Mumbai in conjunction with our state chapter.
In addition to this colossal conference, the Bombay Orthopaedic Society has a Jam Packed Academic Calendar, with its Clinical Meetings, Master Series, 17 Instructional Courses and the Post Graduate Training Initiatives. These corporeal events, along with web based innovative initiatives will serve as the back bone of our academic program for the current academic year.
