I write to you on behalf of the Pakistan Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons on the occasion of the 10th Pakistan Conference of Oral & maxillofacial Surgeons to be held in Karachi from the 28th to the 30th of December 2017.
The association over the last 23 years has been working towards the development and promotion of this key specialty. We are proud to say that in these years we have developed from small number of foreign trained surgeons to now quite a few hundred all over Pakistan, all locally educated and well trained.
These conferences provide opportunities to deliberate, discuss and chart further progress and by bringing in foreign peers, a showcase to demonstrate and exchange views, ideas and innovations in surgery.
I am grateful to the International Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons for teaming up with us to bring to the participants a world class conference, which I hope will truly be a learning experience for all the participants.
I am also grateful to the Higher Education Commission, Faculty of Medicine University of Karachi, College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan, the Government of Sindh and the City of Karachi for their patronage.
Syed Mahmood Haider
