Secretary's Message

Dr. Nadeem Jeddy MDS , FIAOMP

“Experience is the teacher of all things and the only source of knowledge is experience. 

Being the Hon.Secretary of IAOMP, it is indeed a humbling moment for me to share my experiences and future perspectives to indoctrinate and achieve academic excellence in oral pathology. Being a passionate oral pathologist, I abide to the holistic oath with a vision of creating highly competent graduates in oral pathology by fostering excellent skills, work ethics, compassion, knowledge-driven cognitive proficiency and promulgate knowledge regarding oral health disease prevention at its very initial stage especially in the area of oral cancer prevention. To achieve this, we as a team have successfully conducted 30th National IAOMP Conference in November 2023 at KLE, Belagavi; 20th National PG Convention in July 2023 at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi; Zonal CDE programs and Workshops under the banner of IAOMP; INDIA CAN TORCH, an initiative for cancer awareness  pan India every month. We are knowledge partners with various International organizations.

We strongly believe in the virtue of “ Team Work : Together We Can Achieve & Excel”  and I would like to appreciate the entire team for making all these events a grand success. 

On academic front, it takes immense pleasure for me to announce few of our accolades by implementing various extension – outreach activities / collaboration with national – international platforms. A tie up in collaboration with an NGO from USA. Initiation of National registry of oral diseases as quality enhancement initiative for inculcating a culture of continuous improvement in oral pathology. 

We have duly placed the proposal to DCI for increase in staff recruitment policy from 2 to 3 senior lecturers for undergraduate BDS degree programme with 100 admissions with a vision to create employment / job opportunities for  the successful placement of our young post graduate students after completion of MDS programme. For enhancing innovative teaching learning (ITL) and outcome based education (OBE) model as per Education 4.0 & NEP 2020, we have proposed for incorporating clinical postings for the  III BDS students so as to enhance their clinical skills and achieve graduate attributes with basic core competencies in the subject of oral pathology. We are glad to share that we have initiated a family welfare scheme in case of sudden loss of an IAOMP member. The nominee will receive a substantial amount from the association through the scheme. The IAOMP data work has also been initiated and will be soon completed for the betterment. 

I wish all members a very “Happy New Year
