Dear Members,

The privilege of being elected as the 50th President of such a large and prestigious organization, our dear AMC, comes with huge responsibilities. The biggest responsibility being the supporter of all the members, the voice of all who have placed their trust in this association.

I come as I, but from the time of installation as President on 28th March 2021, I stand as 12,000+ members.

While I take on this colossal task, I am backed by the entire managing committee including the Trustees, office-bearers, advisors of cells, chairpersons of cells, zonal directors, and area representatives who all shall be working this year for a common goal in unison thus multiplying our strength.

Covid has severely affected the entire globe, all our lives and professions in myriad ways. We are still struggling to win over the 2nd Covid wave, and in these times I request all the members, their near and dear ones as well as their patients, to follow the guidelines for prevention of Covid thoroughly and strictly. While we are much better at treating Covid than last year, there are still multiple issues in treatment of Covid and related challenges with advanced disease. Non-availability of adequate drugs, facilities and Covid care compounds the threat to life.Let’s all stand for and with each other in these trying times so that we tide over the crisis with minimum damage. My sincere condolences to those who have laid down their lives for the cause of Covid care of the people of this country and indebtedness to those who are tirelessly and continuously offering their services.While carrying on with the tradition of AMC, I wish to bring forth fresh ideas, unusual themes, innovative methodology and techniques, and adapt adequately and appropriately with changing times with the theme of “TRIPLE R: Revive.Refresh.Ready”

Continuing the signature events of AMC like Doctor’s day program, AMCON, FINCON, MLCON and ITCON, this year we will have many more new themes which will be communicated to you all from time to time.

I conclude with the quote which resonates with me every time I think of the qualities of a leader

“Great leaders believe they work for their team, average leaders believe their team works for them”
