Translational Advances in Ophthalmology

Course Description

Credit to Mike McKay

As a complimentary continuing education module for the University of Kentucky Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, we are pleased to now offer free online CME for our Translational Mini-Symposium Lecture Series. In this re-engineered format, we have invited two world-renowned visiting speakers to engage in a combined clinical/basic science lecture series covering a unified theme. One of the lecturers will have expertise in a particular clinical problem while the other speaker will be an expert in a related research discipline. Each of the mini-symposia consist of two thirty minute talks by each speaker, a moderated question and answer session and a brief post-test.

Michael Karpf, MD "A few years ago, we embarked on an exciting and innovative program to bring together leaders in the clinical practice of ophthalmology and in vision research in a unique format that enabled a true translational dialogue. This minisymposium series has been a phenomenal success in enabling a rich and interactive discourse that transmits the latest clinical and investigative data in an accessible format and generates new concepts for further exploration. We have been fortunate to attract some of the most distinguished leaders in our field to this minisymposium series at the University of Kentucky, and are proud to now offer this unique treasure trove to you online."
