The need for establishing a U.P. Chapter of Obstetrician and Gynecologists was felt for a long time but could materialise only in 1986. It was the dynamic leadership of Prof. Usha Sharma from Meerut who conceptualized and started the organization. Thus the U.P. Chapter was born in 1986. Prof. Nawal Kishore from Agra took over as the President and Prof. Usha Sharma from Meerut took over as the Secretary. The conference was organized at Meerut in that year itself. Subsequently, annual conferences have been successfully organised in different cities regularly. It would be emphasized that state chapters serve as a good platform for exposure to scientific work for Postgraduate students. They get an opportunity to express and learn from their seniors. All conferences organised so far have been very successful and have been well attended.

Every year conference is organised in Nov./Dec. for 2 days with precongress workshop. The scientific programme is rich and consists of orations, guest lectures and interesting debates in addition to pre & post congress CMES with research papers presented by Junior & Senior doctors. In each conference 5 orations and one key note address are delivered in name of following Senior Doctors who are legend in field of Obst & Gynae
