The OPS will be offering a comprehensive introductory course for our field at the Annual Educational Program. The "Ophthalmic Imaging Crash Course" is a 7 hour course that will take place on Friday, October 14th, in Chicago. A series of speakers will present 30 minute lectures on the following topics: anatomy and physiology, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, other imaging modalities and tips for transitioning into the field. One hour hands-on workshops will allow attendees to actually perform the techniques just learned in the OCT, fundus photography, and fluorescein angiography lectures. Please read the full course description below.

This course is designed for the ophthalmic technician or ophthalmic researcher interested in learning more about imaging the fundus. Ophthalmic technician students just finishing a training program who want to broaden their skill sets would greatly benefit from thiscourseas well. It is also the PERFECT course for the medical professional or general photographer trying to decide on a possible career change.

Ophthalmic Imaging Crash Course

APPROVED CEC's: 7 OPS, 7 JCAHPO-A

Moderator- Houston Sharpe III, OCT-C  Speakers- Kirsten Locke, CRA, FOPS, RN; James Soque, CRA, COA; Michael P. Kelly, FOPS; Heather Carmello, CRA; 

This intensive 7 hour course is intended to help individuals who are completely new to ophthalmic imaging understand ophthalmic imaging basics. It will also help technicians taking on a larger imaging role in their offices. After an introduction to anatomy and physiology specific to the ophthalmic imager, attendees will go through a series of lectures and workshops on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), fundus photography, and fluorescein angiography. The course will wrap up with a lecture on the many other imaging modalities available in ophthalmology and suggestions on transitioning into the field. At the end of this course, students will have completed 3 hours of lectures and 4 hours of workshops. They will be able to summarize the role of the ophthalmic imager, have a basic understanding of anatomy and physiology as it pertains to imaging the fundus, and they will be able to apply the newly gained knowledge during hands on sessions where they are able to perform OCT, fundus photography and mock fluorescein angiography. NOTE: This course is designed for attendees with 0-6 months of imaging experience.
