Dear POA members,

Orthocon 2018 is finally over. It was a great conference and the hall was full even in its last session. This shows that Organizers have done a great job. Elections for the new Executive board were conducted and the new board took the Oath during the General Body.

Our predecessors Prof Shahid Noor as President, Dr. Haroon Rasheed as General Secretary and the whole board has done a very good job and made our job easier. Our challenges include:

  • Promoting the subspecialties
  • Increasing the number of paid fellowships,
  • Finding fellowships slots in other countries,
  • Developing relationships with our sister organizations in the region and promoting POA on international stage.

At the same time, we have to change the procedure of voting in POA to electronic voting as decided by the General Body meeting so that the sessions are not affected by the election process.

We are aiming for very high targets but with your support, InshaAllah will try our best to achieve them. Please pray Almighty Allah to help us achieve these goals.
Kind Regards

Prof. Muhammad Arif Khan

Prof. Khalil Ahmed Gill
Secretary General
