Online education activities

The educational activities of the ACNS-YNF came into limelight with the organizing of the resident and master series of webinars. These programs were a master child of the President Prof Yoko Kato under whom the YNF were provided the wings to fly. Today the webinars are a huge hit and are attended by more than 100 participants every week and are growing steadily.

Finding solutions to difficult problems

These YNF members of the ACNS are in constant touch with each other over social media platform Whattsapp. Thought this we have continuous interaction with regard to surgical cases and their management. Each member provides their expertise in a particular surgical aspect and help each other. We have as such regular discussions over whattsapp and have come through many interesting situations where a logical solution has been arrived at through discussions.

Assisting publications

The members of the YNF have providing outstanding inputs for the publications coming out of the Bantane hospital. The YNF have shown keen interest and are energy in materialising the cases into publications in standard journals. The assistance provided by Prof Kato and her assistants particularly Dr. Yasuhiro Yamada is commendable in this regard.
