The Duke Glaucoma Fellows' Course will take place Friday, November 10, 2017, the day before the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) annual meeting in New Orleans, LA.
This course will provide glaucoma fellows with a comprehensive overview of current practices and controversies in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma and provide a hands-on experience in the latest surgical techniques. The fellows will be able to try out new surgical techniques and instrumentation and discuss how recent clinical trial evidence translates into the clinical setting. A variety of topics will be presented to stimulate the exchange of ideas. Wet-lab sessions and discussion periods will encourage fellow participation. This course is unique in that it is designed to have integrated surgical wet-labs, cutting-edge talks, and case panel discussions.
The mission of Duke Glaucoma is to develop trainees with a fundamental understanding of glaucoma diagnosis and management, and to promote intellectual curiosity. Duke Glaucoma is dedicated to the principle that research into disease mechanisms, patient care, and new technologies is the primary method by which we improve the outcomes of patients.
