In February 2018 we want to start the First Uveitis Course in Addis Ababa. Since 2007 the IUSG is the Organizer of a similar course in Venice, Italy. The IUSG and the IOC endorse this activity to advance knowledge about uveitis in the context of ophthalmology. With Addis Ababa we have the chance to bring our experience to one of the safest, but also most beautiful countries in Africa. As an African that will allow you to join us in an easier way as to travel to Europe, and as a non-African you will have the chance to visit this amazing emerging country. 

It will take place at the beautiful ILRI international research compound about 15 minutes from the airport, which is a diplomatic safe zone. Here we can accommodate 24 participants in addition to the faculty, and there are nearby hotels. We also can accommodate attendees who are staying at their own home in Addis Ababa.

Besides covering the whole field of uveitis on the first days, special topics will be offered later in four small interactive groups: to learn how to evaluate uveitis patients, to rationally develop a differential diagnosis, to interpret imaging results, and to optimize your treatment strategy. The interactive program will allow in depth discussion on management of even complicated uveitis issues.

The course will be limited to 80 attendees.

The international faculty is composed of highly experienced uveitis specialists who are well known for their teaching skills.

We hope we can welcome you in Addis Ababa next February.
