History of SSS

The Society for Scientific Studies was established in 2013 in line with the Manipal Alumni’s interest in providing Continuous Medical Education and
Continuous Professional Development for the growing numbers of medical professionals in the country.
The Manipal Alumni is an accredited CPD Provider under the MMA/MMC CPD Points System.
In the past the Manipal Alumni organised CME/CPD once or twice a year.
We saw a need to streamline the organisation of these events and thus the SSS was born.
Since its inception the Manipal Alumni has been able to organize about five CME’s/CPD’s per year throughout the country,
providing enough CPD points for its members and non members to renew their Annual Practicing Certificate’s
We,then embarked on endorsing CME’s/CPD’s events including Webinars,organised by various Pharma companies for the benefit of all healthcare professionals in this country.
We have had great support from the Pharma and we continue to collaborate with the industry on various CPD and other educational programs for the healthcare professionals.
