    Educating the Educators

    Our model forum, created by residency program directors, focuses on faculty development and engagement, curriculum development, and resident education. Communicating critical content to medical students and residents requires effective teaching and mentoring skills. Symposia, free papers and poster sessions, provide a platform for exchanging and exploring innovative approaches to training and counseling with an emphasis on evidence based practice and results.

    The administrator educational  program provides professional development, networking opportunities, and resource solutions for academic administrators in departments of ophthalmology.  Over two-and-a-half days, administrator attendees explore unique issues on topics encompassing clinical operations, financial management, human resources, compliance/risk management, information technology and more.

    Administrator Boot Camp! This complimentary half-day program will provide administrators with advice and perspective on successful strategies for leading departments of ophthalmology. While the course is designed primarily for new administrators within three years of hire, any administrator who is registered for the annual meeting is welcome to participate. Separate registration is required.
