ICO-OEG Reception: March 1, 2017

The ICO Ophthalmic Educators Group (ICO-OEG) will host a reception for all interested in ophthalmic education on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 from 18:00-19:30 in the East West Ballroom at the Conrad Centennial Hotel––the evening prior to the start of the APAO Congress.

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 APAO 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.
