Young Ophthalmologists Activities at the WOC
For young ophthalmologists (YOs), those with less than ten years of practice, knowing more about international ophthalmology is particularly important and will help with all facets of your practice. YOs are encouraged to attend WOC2018 and to take advantage of the following activities that will be taking place:

  • YO Lounge: YOs will have their own networking lounge at the Congress to meet colleagues who share the same interests. Meet others in your subspecialty, make friends worldwide, volunteer for the ICO, learn about ICO exams, and find a fellowship.
  • YO Reception: YOs should plan to attend a special reception at the Congress venue on Saturday, 16 June at 17:30. This gathering will include surprise giveaway prizes and other fun activities. You will not want to miss this event.
  • YO Sessions: Sessions designed especially for YOs will take place over the four days of the Congress. These are important opportunities to educate yourself about the most current studies, cutting-edge developments, and interesting eye problems. In addition, special sessions on leadership development, continuing professional development and other valuable topics will be offered.
