CME 3rd August 2018

2018 - 2019
The first CME of 2019 is pre-poned to December 2018 on 10th and 11th at Tata Medical Centre, Kolkata

The CME was low-key, but highly significant because Dr.Sherwal, President of IAMM addressedthe gathering. He presented the development of labs in the districts of MP and also the lab mapping done in 4 states. 
Other topics were rather unusual and the delegates enjoyed the different fare with good interaction. On the second day, delegates were able to see the state of art infrastructure and infection control measures adopted in Tata Medical Centre, Kolkata.
A special thanks to Dr.Sanjay Bhattacharya and his organising team for taking this up at short notice and making it a memorable experience for all of us. 
A few photos of the first day shared below.
