Greetings to all PALES fellows and members.

2014 ushers in a new leadership in our society. First of all, I would like to thank our fellows for electing your new board of directors for 2014-2015. I would like to thank also the board for trusting me to steer our society for the next two years. With your new leadership, we have decided to push PALES to the next level in terms of surgical training, education and credentialing. For surgical training, we are currently finishing our curriculum for basic laparoscopy and the PALES manual for basic laparoscopy. Once done, the curriculum and the manual will be the backbone of basic laparoscopy training with regards to new trainees in laparoscopy.

With support from our industry partners, PALES will also conduct more advanced workshops to further advance the practice of advanced laparoscopy in our country. We will also work on how advanced laparoscopic procedures can be credentialed so that the practice of advanced laparoscopy in our country will be standardized for patient’s benefit and safety.

We are also working on consolidating the training program of the current fellowship programs for laparoscopy in the country such that the three existing program will have a unified fellowship curriculum.

We will also further strengthen our chapters and empower them to conduct more workshops in their locality with the help and support of the national society.

The next two years will be an exciting year for PALES and with your support it will definitely a successful years ahead.

Jose Macario V. Faylona, MD, FPCS, FPALES
President, 2014-2015
