The society has produced approximately 2,000 medical specialists, who have engaged in active activities, participated in many international conferences as pioneers, and published a paper at prominent international journals and a textbook. The society formed an MOU with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and participated in its conference as the world's second guest nation to be invited by it. Those are some of the illustrious developments and achievements of the society.
As the president of the society to lead it for two years, I plan to focus my efforts on the followings in cooperation with the chairman of the board and the board members:
First, I will further expand the global base of the society and activate its global exchanges. I will make further efforts to solidify its relations with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons more and expand its mutual collaborative relationships with the American society across many different areas including academic conferences, medical specialist training, in-service training for young doctors, and contribution and operation of researches and journals. I am going to broaden the scope of its human and academic exchanges with societies in the developed nations including Japan, Australia, Italy, and the United Kingdom in addition to the United States through an MOU. I will also raise the status of our society in the international societies community through participation in and exchange with advanced global societies of plastic surgery including the Plastic Surgery Global Leaders Forum.
Secondly, I will make it sure that our members will take pride and have a sense of reward as respected and beloved plastic surgeons among the people, but my efforts alone will not be enough. Each and every member of the society should be more ethical and righteous with their activities and serve the people and difficult patients more with love. I will make the movement a priority and lead it at any places so that our members will have more warmth and respect and become happier with love and a sense of reward.
Finally, our society will mark its 50th anniversary in two years. Looking back on its traces, we will be able to figure out our current position and prepare for our future. We need to have visions and propose core future values with an attitude of preparing for another 50 years and its 100th anniversary.
My respected members of the society, I would like to emphasize once more that your interest and care will make a difference to the development of the society and increase our values. I hope that you will lend your wisdom and offer your strength for the society.
