Indian Academy of Pediatrics Intensive Care Chapter

Important Notification & Clarification regarding fellowship - 27 Jan 2018

Dear Colleagues,

Greetings from IAP Intensive Care Chapter!

This is in concern with the fellowship programme run by IAP Intensive Care Chapter from 2003 :

IAP Intensive Care Chapter had started its own fellowship programme since 2003 in association with ISCCM. It was going smoothly till 2013 under IAP Intensive Care Chapter leadership.

Unfortunately the same programme was hijacked by handful of people who were previously nominated as caretaker for the said programme and made separate registered body without approval of Chapter AGM by giving glamorous name as "College of Pediatric Critical Care". Behind the umbrella of so called "Academics" they were enjoying chairs in rotation along with the financial freedom without taking any official approval of IAP Intensive Care Chapter OB/EB in terms of financial audit and activities under the college, to maintain their autonomy.

Looking into above mentioned circumstances IAP Intensive Care Chapter has forced to relaunch fellowship programme during the year 2017 as per the decision of AGM 2016 at Mumbai. Our main concern is about the the fellows already passed from 2003 to 2013 & those who have done or doing their fellowship under the College of Pediatric Critical Care ( Mislead by these people as IAP Intensive Care Chapter fellowship programme & also illegally used IAP as well as IAP Intensive Care Chapter logo).

Following is official clarification regarding the above mentioned matter:

  1. From 2003 to 2013, as this programme was run by IAP Intensive Care Chapter the fellows passed out need not worry about it as their fellowship is official fellowship recognised by IAP Intensive Care Chapter forever.
  2. From 2013 to 2017, the fellows were mislead by the handful of people under the name so called " College of Pediatric Critical Care " under IAP Intensive Care Chapter. This issue will be taken for discussion during OB/EB meeting in the month of May 2018 & amicable solution will be sorted out for them also.

Please note:
Fellows taking admission from Jan 2018 under " College of Pediatric Critical Care " the IAP Intensive Care Chapter will not be responsible for anything.

This is for the kind information to all the members of the IAP Intensive Care Chapter.
