ICO-OEG Reception: June 10, 2017, 5:45 – 7 p.m. Sala Tibidabo at the AC Hotel Barcelona Forum

Please join us for an opportunity to meet with ophthalmic educators from the region and ICO Education Leaders to discuss this exciting new ICO Special Interest Group and to preview the educational sessions at the SOE Congress. 

The ICO-OEG was formed to support educators and teachers of ophthalmology in recognition that ophthalmic education is a distinct subspecialty of ophthalmology. The ICO-OEG will provide a platform for collaboration, networking, and professional development for everyone interested in ophthalmic education.
