Welcome To ASN

Hello. Welcome to the Website of the Association of Srilankan Neurologists (ASN).

The ASN was formed in 2006 and is the primary Neurology Association in Sri Lanka which comprises of Neurologists, Neurophysiologists and Pediatric Neurologists. The primary objective of the ASN is to raise the profile of Neurology in Sri Lanka, achieve and maintain excellence in the practice of Neurology, and promote neurology education, research and training. This year would be special for the ASN, as it celebrates its 10th Anniversary. The theme of this year’s activities will be Practical Clinical Neurology and all our programs will revolve round this theme.

This year’s academic activities will include monthly Neurology Updates, monthly Practical clinical case presentations, and Teaching courses for the postgraduates. There will be two Regional meetings in Batticoloa and Kalutara. A specialty update in collaboration with the Ceylon College of Physicians will be held in April. A new Neuroradiology club will be established to discuss interesting Neuroradiology cases. MD Part 1 MCQ course and a MD Part 2 shorts cases courses will also be held this year.

Among the non-academic activities will be the Annual Neuro-Cardio cricket encounter. Living Beyond Neurology (LBN) lectures will be held by guest lecturers on non-neurology topics.

The main event would be the Annual Congress which will be held from the 18th - 20th of November, 2016 at the Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo. I am happy to announce that there will be a collaboration with the Association of British Neurologists, who will be represented by a strong delegation of resource persons, led by their President Prof Phil Smith. The theme of this event would be Practical Clinical Neurology and more details of the Congress can be obtained from the website www.conference.asn.lk.

Let me also request you to visit our website which also contains information on the history of the ASN, it's membership both life and honorary, a detailed calendar of events for the year 2016 and a collection of memorable photographs of past events. You will also be able to obtain free access to the full copies of the current and previous “Sri Lanka Journal of Neurology’.

I hope you enjoy our site and visit it more frequently for information of both academic and non-academic activities of the ASN.

Best Wishes
