Cornea Fellows Educational Summit

The Cornea Society is proud to present the 2019 Educational Summit for cornea, external disease, and refractive surgery fellows. This two-day intensive program features both classroom and skills transfer lab components and is designed to complement and reinforce cornea fellowship training.

The Summit’s curriculum has been developed to address specific educational challenges identified by cornea fellowship directors, and is designed to provide:

  • Training to improve diagnostic and treatment skills within the clinic setting
  • Instruction on patient selection and surgical techniques for refractive surgery
  • Technique pearls for routine and complex cataract surgery and corneal transplantation

Sessions involving hands-on skills technique training in both refractive and corneal transplant surgery has been included to provide additional experience, and to better prepare fellows for their first years in practice.

The Cornea Society recognizes the budgetary constraints fellows often experience with meeting attendance and provides Summit participants with a full travel and hotel stipend to offset the cost of participation.
