"It will be the 120th Anniversary of Siriraj Hospital in 2008 since HM King Chulalongkorn established Siriraj Hospital to be the first royal hospital in the Kingdom of Thailand. From that day to this day, Siriraj Hospital has made great progress continuously because the Hospital has rendered very good services and at the same time the doctors continuously refresh new knowledge and innovations. The annual scientific congress is one of the significant activities organized to help them in this matter.

The Faculty has been organizing the scientific congress since 1953 and at all time received high attention from the medical and public health personnel both in national and international levels.

The 120th Anniversary of Siriraj Hospital Scientific Congress is organized to commemorate Siriraj Hospital that renders medical services to all walks of life for 120 years. At present the medical knowledge and technology rapidly progress. With continuing new medical innovation, Siriraj Hospital is considered up to the international standard.

There are many highlight topics in this congress such as “Children Obesity” which is an important and threatening problem to the Thai children.
