  About the Society
The Indian Academy of Otorhinolaryngolgy Head and Neck Surgery was started with a few likeminded academicians of ENT HNS fraternity coming together to create a platform for pure academics and promoting the speciality of ENTHNS in 2014. Officially the Academy came into existence with the first national convention at Chennai. The membership is open to all the ENT Surgeons and is growing very fast. The Academy conducted national Conventions at Chennai (2014), Chandigarh(2015), Kolkota(2016),Pune (2017),Vijayawada(2018) and NewDelhi(2019). 2020 Convention was planned to be conducted at Guahathi but had to be postponed to 2021 due the Covid crisis. The scientific programmes were truly worthy of the academic professional body. The Academy pioneered the mentoring programme to promote the younger talents and at present quite a good number of centres of excellence are identified and conducting the training programmes under the Dean of Academic affairs. The Academy also has taken the initiative of preparing evidence based clinical protocols and guidelines by forming several subcommittees who deliberated and prepared the prototypes which will allow the fraternity to adapt their management decisions locally specific conditions and contexts. Academy also strives impart and share knowledge through CMEs and Conventions conducted under the aegis of the IAOHNS. Even during the Covid 19 pandemic several webinars were conducted for the benefit of the members and ENT professionals at large. The Academy is tied up with American Academy of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery and British Academy of Otolaryngologists. The IAOHNS supports several initiatives such as National Initiative for safe Sound(NISS) and partnered with several International conventions conducted in India. The IAOHNS publishes an semi-annual online Journal aptly called Annals of IAOHNS by M/s Wolter Kluwer Ltd. The IAOHNS is completely apolitical congregation of academically oriented Otorhinolaryngologists with a mission. IAOHNS singularly and collectively works to take our discipline of Otorhinolaryngology forwards, to make it more meaningful to society, to achieve clinical and academic excellence in the respective fields of specialisation and to provide training to the junior colleagues who are the future of the fraternity.
