Welcome to Chennai City Pediatric Association
The Chennai City Pediatric Assosciation (CPA) which took its origin in the late 1990's is now more than a decade old. The idea of CPA originated from from Prof.V.S. Krishnakumari then Director of the famed Institute of Child Health and Hospital for Children Chennai, and Prof. Radha Rajagopalan of the equally famous Apollo Hospital. Others especially Prof.R. Kulandai Kasturi, Prof Thangavelu, Prof P. Ramachandran, Prof Vedavathy Subramanian, Prof. Narayanaswamy, Prof. Sarala Rajajee, Prof. Mangayar Karasi and Prof. Vasantha Malliga contributed enormously to ensure the success of CPA. The CPA met on the third Wednesday of every month, to present Paediatric cases which were unique and challenging. These meetings were enormously successful right from the time of its inception. Practising Paediatricians were genuinely amazed at the wealth of clinical material, knowledge and expertise available in Chennai. It was self evident from these meetings that the bar was consistently raised in the field of Paediatrics.
The aim of this website to chronicle these events and to safe guard the valuable clinical material. Starting January 2010 at the case presentations of the CPA meets would be stored as power point presentations in this site.
