TIPS Symposium Draws Large Turnout

Nearly 100 physicians attended the Triangle Indian-American Physicians Society (TIPS) 5th Annual CME Symposium on September 24, 2011, at the WakeMed Andrews Center in Raleigh.

“We are delighted to see that the organization we started six years ago has grown to a vibrant and thriving organization of over 150,” TIPS President Prashant Patel, MD, said in opening remarks.

Dr. Patel praised the NCMS for successfully addressing medical liability reform during the 2011 legislative session. “As a member of the NCMS Legislative Cabinet, I witnessed the wonderful work the cabinet and our lobbyists, who are second to none, have performed,” he said.

In listing TIPS’ accomplishments thus far, Dr. Patel noted that two members had graduated from the NCMS Leadership College: Pankaj Gupta, MD, Cary; and Vipul Shah, MD, Burlington.

Four physicians made presentations at the symposium:

Sameer Mathur, MD, Emerging Technologies in Spinal Surgery

Sam Chawla, MD, Prostate Cancer Screening & Treatment

Richard Weisler, MD, Mood Disorders: Diagnosis & Treatment

Sonal Arora, MD, Sleepiness in America
