Dr. Adibul Hasan Rizvi awarded honorary fellowship by ACS

KARACHI:The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has conferred an honorary fellowship on Dr Adibul Hasan Rizvi of the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) for his distinguished services in the field of medical sciences, public services and for pioneering the transplant movement in Pakistan. According to a press release, Dr. Adibul Hasan Rizvi, by securing the coveted honour, has joined the ranks of a very selective global group of medical practitioners. The fellowship was conferred on Dr. Adibul Hasan Rizvi at the annual congress of the college at Washington DC, according to SIUT. This year, the honorary fellowship was awarded to five surgeons hailing from various parts of the world who have made extraordinary contributions in their respective branches of surgery. The renowned surgeons who received fellowships were from Australia, Colombia, France and Japan besides Dr. Adibul Hasan Rizvi from Pakistan. In its citation, the college recounted the meritorious services rendered by Dr. Adibul Hasan Rizvi by setting up SIUT in Karachi, which not only provides state-of-the-art medical treatment to people free of charge but is also one of the growing urological and transplant centres of the region. It also lauded the pivotal role that Dr. Adibul Hasan Rizvi has played in his country by bringing a legislation to prohibit commercial transplantation. ACS, established in 1903, is the largest professional organisations of surgeons in the world with 80,000 members on its roll. Each year, a group of globally renowned surgeons are awarded honorary fellowships. The process is quite competitive as the college, in its entire history, has awarded honorary fellowships only to 445 surgeons.
