NEW Course Spotlight: Women in Ophthalmic Imaging – a Current Perspective
Date: Sunday, October 19, 2014 @ 2:45PM
Speaker: Paula Morris, CRA, FOPS
Our noble profession has been around for over a half century and has evolved in many ways including developing technology, changing roles in patient care and diversifying the workforce. The number of women in ophthalmic imaging has increased dramatically and reflects the gains in women’s employment overall.
This course will present an overview of the role of women in our profession, providing a short historical review of women’s contributions to our Society, and taking a closer look at the current attitudes and actions of women who
are making ophthalmic imaging a career and vocation, not just a job. Discussion of successful work, training, and certification strategies will include active audience participation. Upon registration and prior to the course, each attendee will be asked to participate in a short online survey designed specifically for this presentation. The results of the survey will be reviewed and discussed during the course. At the end of this course, attendees will be able to list and discuss the merits of three strategies for professional development, and describe three skills that are important in successfully supporting and performing current modalities of ophthalmic imaging.
