Dear Colleagues,

It gives me immense pleasure in announcing the annual academic sessions of the College of Anaesthesiologists & Intensivists of Sri Lanka for 2019. This most important event in our calendar will be the 35th Academic Congress. The main sessions will be held on the 19thand the 20thof January 2018 at Hotel Galadari Colombo Sri Lanka. This will be held in collaboration with the Faculties of Critical Care and Pain Medicine of the College of Anaesthesiologists & Intensivists of Sri Lanka.

Our theme this year is “To overcome challenges and move forward”.

We have lined up many pre and post congress workshops and simulation programmes in addition to the two days of congress.


We have invited some of the world renowned speakers. Some of them represent the Royal College of Anaesthetists and the Faculties of Intensive Care and Pain Medicine, UK. Consultant Anaesthetists from many other countries including Australia, Italy, India, Singapore and USA will also participate.


This will be a great opportunity to update your knowledge on recent developments in the fields of Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine. You can also experience the Sri Lankan hospitality, cultural heritage and enjoy some of the spicy culinary delicacies during the two days of fellowship.
