WELCOME TO THE THIRTEENTH EDITION
I am very happy to participate in OSMECON 2013, National Undergraduate Medical Conference which is an initiative in Medical Research held at Osmania Medical College. It is the Medical profession where you find bliss. I was reading a book titled 'Medicine and Compassion'. In that they talk about the virtues to be possessed by each medical practitioner. First virtue is generosity; the second virtue is pure ethics; third is tolerance, fourth is perseverance, fifth is cultivating pure concentration and the sixth virtue is to be intelligent. These virtues will empower the care givers with a humane heart. And I want to add, when you remove pain of a person and when you don't induce diagnostic pain, you will be remembered. I am sure all the medical students participating in this National Conference will inculcate these virtues in their life

OSMECON provides the right platform for doctors-in the making to embark on the continuous journey of updating their knowledge and skills. "The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn". Wishing the event a grand success, I whole-heartedly congratulate all those associated with organizing OSMECON.

OSMECON Undergraduate Medical Conference held in our country opens up the skills of medicos and helps them spread their wings in terms of research. Research needs to be encouraged from the student days itself.Accessibility, availability and affordability with quality care should be the slogan of the day. I am sure OSMECON 2017 will look into the above challenges and come up with fruitful solutions.

I was impressed by the highly motivated group of students at OSMECON 2014. The exhibits by the engineering students on Technology Innovation was another great idea and provides a glimpse into the future. The team spirit, not a common feature in the country was very remarkable. The questions raised by the students at the panel discussion were commendable. The level of interest in research was a pleasant surprise for me and augurs well for the future.

The story of science is one of constant discovery and ceaseless verification. The quest for the truth involves inquisitiveness, enterprise, energy, and application in the process of discovery. It also calls for scientific temper that embodies objectivity, critical appraisal of data and rational judgment that carefully weighs the evidence. I am happy to note that OSMECON is engaging medical students in experiencing the romance and rigor of research. In this particular research symposium, research methodology as well as actually conducted research was discussed in depth by undergraduate students. It is important because it is not only looking at the mechanics of research, but also looking at how research can be translated into both clinical and public health practice, and into policy. I am sure this intense immersion and interaction will stimulate many young students to pursue purposeful and productive research as a part of their future careers. I wish this vibrant celebration of science the very best of success.

Medical students are budding young physicians and should be encouraged in research. OSMECON is taking a step forward in that direction. I wish you all a very very engaging, interesting learning experience at this conference.
