Dear IADVL members!

I hope that the year 2022 has started well as we bid farewell to the less busy year for all of us as we tried balancing our professional life admist this pandemic. It is an honour to serve as the IADVL secretary of gujarat branch (GSB) for the year 2022. Admist all the chaos in 2021, our association successfully managed to pulled out its nobel work using virtual platform without loosing its charm. I am eternally grateful for the support that I have received from all the members of our prestigious association and also for putting your valuable trust in me to do the great for our community.

I am committed to work with all the members to raise the profile of our association and to promote various educational activities. Addition to all the marvellous work that has been carried out in 2021, I plan to further strengthen the base of academics among young scholars. My primary goal is to cope with the rising demand of dermatosurgery in today’s generation. I am determined to build an unbending base for all the dermatologist to practice safe and efficient surgeries and Also, focusing on the areas of Dermatosurgery that has been not explored yet.

Looking back in the past years, I believe IADVL has matured as a society with increase in LM members; increased number of camps, activities, webiners, workshops, CMEs; increased impact factor of our official journal; strengthening partnership with our sister society. I plan to continue my work in development of the above mentioned activities.

Last but not the least, I would like to ask the members to continue their contributions in their own way towards our academy. Our society is as strong as its members and I am confident that our members support is a positive sign for growth of IADVL. There is so much more to improve dermatology for our community, which can be achieved by working togather, as we have been doing since forever.

I wish all my IADVL members a wonderful year ahead.
