  Dr Balsalam Award presentation 2013

QPMPA Trivandrum has instituted The QPMPA Dr. Balsalam Award and in its third year has become one of the most coveted awards in health care.

Prof. Dr. N. Balsalam was a loving husband and a caring father to his family; a compassionate and skilled surgeon to the world and an exacting and loving teacher to his students. He was the founder president of QPMPA Trivandrum. A man of principles, Prof. Balsalam used to emphasize three things: never be in a hurry; do one thing at a time; whatever you do, do it with a will. He will forever live in our memories as a man who loved and cared for his fellow beings.

QPMPA: Dr. Balsalam Award recognises life time contribution of a doctor who has rendered yeoman service to the society at large and to fellow doctors. The first award was given to  Dr. G. Velayudhan, founder of GG Hospital in recognition of the outstanding work he is doing for the upliftment of society. His selfless service is an inspiration to the new generation of doctors. He is a gifted doctor, a great entrepreneur and above all a compassionate human being.
