Welcome Message

From the President, Dr. Duru Shah and the Managing Committee of the PCOS Society, India

Welcome to the 6th Annual Congress of the PCOS Society, India to be held virtually between the 2nd and 3rd October 2021, in Mumbai.

We are delighted to offer you an amazing Scientific program entitled "Fundamental Concepts in PCOS - Bridging the gaps" which will help us bridge the gaps between various disciplines managing PCOS, and our own gaps in knowledge on the very complex issue of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

This 2 day academic program of 6 hours on each day will be brought to you by eminent global speakers and renowned national faculty.

The program will be held between 1.30 pm Indian Standard Time to 9.00 pm, in order to accommodate our International Faculty for live discussions.

We look forward to welcoming you for this very interesting meeting, which I am confident you will truly enjoy.

With warm regards
