Pakistan Society of Anaesthesiologists Centre
To advance the science and art of anaesthesia in Pakistan and to enhance the professional economic and social status of anaesthesiologists and to develop cordial relations amongst the PSA members and the other specialties both in and outside Pakistan.
O n 13th March 1971 twelve Pakistani Anaesthesiologists led by Dr Habib-ul-Haq Siddiqui formally joined hands at Karachi and decided to collectively strive for the betterment of their specialty, and thus Pakistan Society of Anaesthesiologists was born.
We salute the founder members for conceptualizing the idea of the Society and the office bearers throughout these years for the various milestones the Society has achieved to reach its present status, which is nothing less than “A Role Model Society”. It is only with dedication, commitment, persistence and teamwork that such success is achieved and we have been fortunate all along to have such members.
