Chairman's Message


Today , HCG has become a centre of excellence in the area of oncology. The challenge for us is in sustaining this high level of excellence. Academics is an inseparable part of any endeavour to sustain excellence. The scope of Academics as viewed in HCG includes continuing medical education programs, weekly tumour board discussions, organized teaching programs leading to both HCG certified speciality degrees and university and national board recognised degrees.

I look forward to the participation of the extended HCG family in the entire HCG group of hospitals in this effort in the future.
