The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Division of Continuing Medical Education frequently offers lectures pertaining to vision issues and breakthroughs.
The Vanderbilt Eye Institute is proud to sponsor annually an academic seminar series in which top clinician-scientists and research scientists from various institutions present their latest studies and results. Our guest speakers are invited for two days of one:one meetings with our own faculty and informal discussions with our doctoral and post-doctoral fellows. The focus of our series is translational research that bridges findings from the laboratory with clinical applications. For more information, please contact Rebecca Sappington, Ph.D..
A special guest lecturer is invited each year for this lectureship.
Each year in the spring, the faculty of Vanderbilt Eye Institute host a weekend event in which distinguished guest speakers discuss recent advances and the latest treatment modalities for diseases of the retina and vitreous, new technology in cataract and refractive surgery, state of the art glaucoma care, current concepts in neuro-ophthalmology, and treatment of common anterior segment pathology. The two-day scientific program provides practical and invaluable information geared towards the practice of ophthalmology.
At our Ophthalmology Grand Rounds we discuss topics which range from oculoplastics, uveitis, glaucoma, pathology, retina, and neuro-ophthalmology to corneal and external disease. Each resident will present five to six Grand Rounds per year. These are held each Friday at 7:00 a.m. at VEI in the Elliott Conference Room, Suite 1210.
