A very warm welcome to the Society of Otolaryngology- Head & Neck Surgery Singapore (SOHNSS), the official society that represents the interest of all the Otolaryngologists in Singapore.
The society has come a long way and the success is due to your continued support and active participation all these years. Hence, it is really an honor and privilege to be able to serve and lead the society. Together with the new executive committee, we will aim to build on the foundations laid down by our predecessors and seek new avenues to bring change and continuity to the society.
I envision the society to function as a friendly platform for all the Otolaryngologists to come together for both academic and social reasons. We regularly hold activities such as the Annual Scientific Meeting, CME (Continuing Medical Education) Dinner Symposiums, Peer Review Learning Sessions and GP symposiums to keep everyone abreast of the most advanced development in our field and also to impart our knowledge to the next generation. Social activities, such as the Annual Sports Day and the Society Cohesion Day, allow us to foster relationship and promote a sense of belonging and identity to the Society.
This is also a significant year for the society as we are hosting the 18th ASEAN ORL-HNS Congress. We have put together an impressive 2.5 days of scientific programme consisting of 5 concurrent tracks featuring Otology, Rhinology, Laryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Paediatric Otolaryngology, Sleep Apnea Surgery, and Facial Plastic Surgery with renowned international and local teaching faculties. There will also be Pre and Post Congress Hands-on Workshops. We aim to showcase our capabilities and expertise in Singapore, and to improve collaboration with our neighbouring countries.
I sincerely hope you will actively participate in our activities, and at the same time provide us with your invaluable feedback so that we can improve the society and bring it to the next level. As I am looking forward to an exciting term as the President of the SOHNSS, I would like to thank all of you for your unwavering support for our society. It is my desire and vision to see our fraternity develop as one united family, with frequent interactions and exchanges to strengthen bonds and improve knowledge, so as to serve the community better.
