Woohoo! Top Ophthalmology Conferences for the 2015-2016 Year!

Top Conferences for 2016

Dear Lovers of Life,

As I begin another year of residency, I begin to get the craving for research. I know, I’m all sorts of nerd. A medical student that I mentor recently asked me how I approach my research calendar for the year. This academic year I presented in 6 different academic conferences! YIKES. How did I manage this? Planning in terms of conferences is crucial, but don’t “go ham” as they say, find your interest, target those venues, and have fun! To aide in that mission I have listed the top 10 ophthalmology conferences, by attendance, word of mouth, and personal experience.  Click the links for more information. I encourage you to submit abstracts/papers to many conferences. Conferences are a great way to network, build connections for the future, find job openings, and most importantly open your mind to the latest and greatest advances in eye care. Good Luck and Enjoy!

(Conferences are listed in random order except for number 1, because it holds a special place in my heart!)
