It is an honour for me to accept the position of President VAPM, an organisation with a proud past and an exciting future.

And as I refer to its proud past I wish to acknowledge the achievements, guidance and support of our senior members and pioneers of VAPM. Now it’s our turn to make exciting future. I feel fortunate that most of them were my teachers. I would like to thank you all the VAPM members, for placing your confidence and trust in me to serve as President. I thank those who have guided me, supported me and educated me. And most of all I am thankful for all the wonderful friendships I have made in this organization.

Our theme for VAPM 22 will be, “ In pursuit of excellence” We will continue to build on our strength but also take on new directions.

This association is a perfect blend of academicians, faculties, consultant pathologists, Senior and junior residents. We will continue our program that strengthen our professionalism through education, training and resources. We will also retain our commitment to solidarity, ensuring that our members can have more opportunities and assistance to develop the skills. The annual conference VAPCON, which comprises of Dr. M.
