Dear Delegates,

The Scientific programme Of APICON 2016 at Hyderabad will be prepared keeping in view the requirements of the Post-graduate students, medical teachers and practicing physicians. Besides the Hall A, all other halls will be kept equally important and the sessions will be divided subject wise so as to enable delegates to plan according to the areas of interest.

In unison with our theme “From Evidence to Practice-Indian Perspective” the effort will be to use scientific knowledge, studies and guidelines for helping physicians to translate this factual knowledge into good clinical practices for better patient care. The ultimate aim of any scientific deliberation and so also the APICON 2016 will be to help doctors to discharge scientifically correct, practical, possible and ethical care to the patients. The scientific committee from Ludhiana will work collectively in this direction.

We will emphasize on Indian evidence to bring you the good research data that is available from our country. This will also inspire greater research by young clinicians. We intend to cover recent developments of the last few years. We will have foreign experts who are world leaders in their subjects and the top National faculty. We will have a spectrum of sessions which will include workshops, hands on training sessions, didactic lectures, key note addresses, controversies in medicine, introduction to procedures in medicine and a special emphasis on case related problem solving sessions.

Suggestions are invited and welcome from the delegates on my phone number (9815545316) and e-mail (apigswander@gmail.com ).Any expert who has contributed significantly and wants to participate is welcome to write. We will also appreciate any topic which the delegates in general would like to be covered. You are welcome to send abstracts for presentations as free papers or poster presentations, the format for which will be intimated in near future.

Let us all get together in preparing an interesting, knowledgeable and clinical oriented scientific programme and the medicine update book for the APICON 2016.
