The State leadership of IMA Kerala State Branch remains committed to elevating ima Kerala Medical Journal to world standards with the best of scientific research being featured in it. It is heartening to note that original medical research by medical students is being encouraged and two articles are being published in this issue of IMA KMJ. It has been the constant endeavour of IMA KSB to improve medical education and promote evidence based medicine as an antidote to the high prevalence of quackery and unscientific medicine in our state. Excellence in all areas of clinical modern medicine is our motto this year – Strengthening the profession, Striving for excellence. We reiterate our full support for the ongoing improvements of the Journal.
