The Indian Pancreas Club came into existence on Sunday, 29th August 2004 in Willingdon Island, Cochin. Nearly 60 of India’s top pancreatologists met, discussed and debated as to how such a club should be created and how it should function. A preliminary constitution was drawn up and first governing council was elected.
The aims of this club are:
1. To encourage and advance the knowledge and practice of the specialty of pancreatology in all possible ways.
2. To promote the exchange and diffusion of information and ideas relating to the pancreas and associated organs.
3. To provide a forum of discussion for pancreatic problems on a national scale.
4. To encourage scientific investigations in the field of pancreatology
