Message from the Dean
The Asia Oceania School of Nuclear Medicine (AOSNM) is a newly founded initiative by the Asia Oceania Federation of Nuclear Medicine and Biology (AOFNMB). It was proposed during the Yokohama conference of Asia Ocean Congress of Nuclear Medicine and Biology (AOCNMB) 2017 and through it was a consensus of a growing demand for a platform to provide informal training courses to bridge the gap between clinical practices and formal education; a networking and learning opportunities through events and exchanges within Asia and Oceania; and a stage for our young talented nuclear medicine physicians to showcase and compete among its peers from around the regions.
During my term as the Dean of AOSNM, I hope to work together with our fellow colleagues and members from around Asia and Oceania to tackle the follow key issues:
1. The exchange and dissemination of the latest clinical practices and technologies in the multidisciplinary field of nuclear medicine
2. The fostering and education of young nuclear medicine practitioner in different member regions of AOSNM
3. The standardization of nuclear medicine practices and training manual
4. The facilitation of communication and exchange among our members in different nuclear medicine discipline and regions
5. The collaboration with different international nuclear medicine organizations
AOSNM as a young body of AOFNMB will nevertheless have both tremendous opportunities and obstacles as we move forward. As the new dean of AOSNM, I am thrilled and excited to be a part of this rising learning ground for our colleagues and students in the multidisciplinary field of nuclear medicine. I sincerely wish to take my previous experience and expertise as the dean of Asia School of Nuclear Medicine (ASNM) to help facilitate the development and cooperation among our AOSNM members and regions. In particular, I would like to see more collaborations with different world organizations such as IAEA, WFNMB, ESNM, SNMMI and other distinguished societies to help nurture our member physicians and regions to align with the global standards and forward thinking in the field of nuclear medicine to better serve and help our patients. Together, let us shape a brighter and healthier tomorrow.
