- Prof. Samath D. Dharmaratne
I am greatly privileged to be elected as the 48th President of the Kandy Society of Medicine (KSM) for the year 2017 /18. I pledge that I will do my utmost as the new President for the progress of the KSM.
The KSM was formally established as a society in 1964, in the central hill capital. Since its inception, the KSM has influenced improving knowledge, skills and attitudes of the medical profession, in the region and in Sri Lanka.
I and the Council of the KSM will continue the routine academic programmes, including the very popular Wednesday CME program. Along with the council, I hope to promote ‘Collaborations for Global Health’, the theme for the year. The KSM will be made a place to collaborate, interact, share and learn for all medical officers in Kandy, Sri Lanka and the world. CME lectures, special updates, Foundation sessions and the Annual Academic Sessions will be geared to achieve the theme of the KSM.
