Message from President
Namaste,

Established in 1994, Society of Internal Medicine Of Nepal (SIMON) is the largest organisation of specialists in Internal Medicine in Nepal.

SIMON has been highly active in promoting professional knowledge, skill and competence of all its members since its establishment. SIMON has been regularly conducting academic activities like monthly CME programs in various medical fields of interest. This includes timely updates on continuously changing evidence and updates in the guidelines of all medical subspecialities. This has reinforced the SIMON community in providing the highest quality medical service to Nepalese people.

SIMON programs benefit the SIMON members and physicians working throughout the country. Timely Regional CMEs in various towns outside the capital and the SIMON National Conference held in various cities  across the country are a few examples. In association with the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, SIMON has conducted magnificent workshops in and outside Kathmandu valley. SIMON International Conference happening every 2 years in Kathmandu is a big medical fest of its type.

During the COIVD-19 pandemic, SIMON has been actively involved in formulating treatment guidelines. Though physical activities were reduced due to the pandemic safety restrictions, virtual CMEs have helped to distribute the fast changing medical information to the needy. SIMON will continue its academic culture in the pre-pandemic format when the pandemic safety restrictions are lifted.

I express my gratitude to the Founders of SIMON, all Past Presidents, executive members and SIMON members for their active contributions and dedications to bring SIMON to this height. On behalf of the new executive committee, I pledge to work hard with utmost dedication to make this society a professional &  academic society.

I look forward to continuous support from the SIMON community, other healthcare personnel and supporting parties in achieving our goals.

Let all of us work together as a SIMON family and to make it a professional society of academic excellence.

Prof Dr Ratnamani Gajurel

President
