Dear IAP Family Members!  

IAP Kerala is one of the most active branch of Central IAP with more than 1800 members. We are the winner of almost all awards at National level and in front of all IAP action plans , academic activities, Days and week celebrations, etc. This is only because of dynamic activities of our 22 vibrant branches .


Dear Friends and Fellow academicians,

I request full support of each and every member of IAP to implement the following programmes as my action plan. Programmes are meant for school children, physically and mentally handicapped children, for young researchers and last one for PGs and staff working in Medical colleges of Kerala. I think all these groups are important for our Academy.
