INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY SOCIETY OF PAKISTAN
Welcome to IRSP: The Central Hub of The IR Community In Pakistan.
This community of IR specialists was founded in 2014 to provide an integrated platform for the exchange of IR-related research and procedures, both locally and globally. IR as a minimally invasive procedure, has been actively pursued in Pakistan since 1990s, post the influx of patients requiring the treatment and the global popularity of the subspecialty.
It is an honor for our IR specialists to have been able to recognize and pursue timely, the massive potential IR has of transforming the field of medicine. While doing so, IR has improved tremendously the standard of care of our patients. IRSP has played a vital role in enabling IR specialists to lay down the groundwork for amalgamating IR technology and techniques with other clinical fields. This has allowed IR to become an integral cog in the overall machinery of the healthcare system in Pakistan.
In the past IRSP has held multiple international conferences and domestic workshops to bring together specialists from different fields and countries for the purpose of integration and knowledge management. Additionally, society has a strong focus on ensuring that new professionals entering the field of medicine have sound knowledge and easy access to training in this subspecialty. To this end, the society has initiated collaboration with various International IR Societies.
"As the president, I would like to enthusiastically welcome you to the Interventional Radiology society of Pakistan. I feel it is a tremendous honor to serve as the president.
It is my hope, desire, and dreams, we move forward in promoting IR education across our beloved country. IRSP is a high-quality organization made up of individuals who are all motivated to make positive influences in the healthcare system. I hope together we can reach great horizons.
Remember IRSP offers you opportunities to grow professionally and academically by serving on committees, publishing in journals, and presenting at conferences.
We have achievable targets in the next session, including standardization of IR procedures, annual CME calendar for residents and young IRs, research-based working at the national level, promotion and awareness of interventional radiology among physicians & patients, and representation of IRSP at the national level while collaborating with the private sector and the government.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to make suggestions, serve on committees, or just visit. I look forward to meeting in the future."
Jazak Allahu Khairan!
