Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences Grand Rounds provides a forum for discussion of interesting cases of ophthalmic diseases as seen through the lens of clinical care, research, and education. Residents, fellows and faculty engage in weekly presentations with the goal of providing healthcare professionals with enhanced knowledge as well as new strategies that will lead to modified practice and improved patient outcomes. Each year, our Grand Rounds welcomes a number of international and national visiting professors as well as regional expert presenters, including low vision organizations. The series includes translational research and its clinical applications with our new science and disease focused lectures. The inclusion of basic science research presentations in the Grand Rounds would translate into four full-hour-long sessions, consisting of a combination of two research-clinical presentations and two purely research presentations. Participation by clinicians, scientists, residents, fellows, medical students, clinic staff and other employees is encouraged to allow for rich discussion on clinical cases from multiple perspectives.
Ophthalmology and partnering clinical and research faculty (MD, DO, PhD), ophthalmology residents, fellows, medical students, undergraduate and graduate students, local and regional ophthalmologists, veterinary ophthalmologists, optometrists, nurses, technicians, and other clinic staff.
