Assam Doctor is 1st Indian doctor to become Prez of Danish Society of Interventional Radiology  


Guwahati, July 21, 2017:  Dr Arindam Bharadwaz from Assam, a senior consultant of the Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark has been unanimously selected as the president of the Danish Society of Interventional Radiology (DFIR – Dansk Forening for Interventionel Radiologi), Denmark during the annual general meeting and conference held recently.  He is the second son of Dr Prabin Chandra Sarma, ex-MP from Guwahati and Geeta Sarma, a pioneer of Goalpariya Lokageet and a retired school teacher.

It may be noted that this is the first time that an Indian has been elected to the post of a president of a Danish as well as Scandinavian medical society. He has been working in the Interventional Radiology division of Aarhus University Hospital since 2008. He was also selected as the Chief Coordinator of the Nordic (Scandinavian) societies of Interventional Radiology comprising of societies from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland in 2016, the first ever Indian to hold that post. In 2013, he became the first (and probably the only) Assamese to have acquired the degree of European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR).

He passed MBBS and MD (Radiology) from Guwahati Medical College in 1994 and 1999 respectively.
