FHNO Academics

FHNO is happy to announce FHNO academics. Based on the core curriculum or the FHNO fellowship program we bring you a series of lectures, case presentations, debates, MDTs and journal clubs every Saturday evening at 7 pm.

While the series is designed with the trainee in mind, it offers substantial variety and content to be of interest to the seasoned practitioner as well. We believe that this program would serve to update us on current evidence and keep us abreast of newer developments in the field.

We are thankful to the dynamic members of the FHNO Fellowship Committee and the newly constituted Education Committee – Narayana Subramaniam, Karan Gupta, Aseem Mishra, Smriti Panda, Mitali Dandekar, Harsh Dhar and Sivakumar Thiagarajan who leads the pack- for taking on this onerous responsibility

An earnest request to all members to join us on a Zoom platform every Saturday evening – to learn and to teach, to inspire and to aspire, to share and to acquire. Together we can raise the bar!
