Ophthalmic Jeopardy!

Posted By Tim Bennett, Monday, April 3, 2017
Updated: Friday, May 12, 2017

In what’s become a bit of a tradition at OPS Mid-Year Educational Programs, I been invited to present Ophthalmic Jeopardy again in 2017. The mid-year is a great environment for this presentation, as the attendees are all together in the same lecture hall for the entire program. In short, I have a captive audience!

If you’ve never seen it, Jeopardy is an irreverent but truly educational event, loaded with audio clips, videos, and spectacular clinical images. Although it’s been presented several times at OPS meetings, it’s just a little different each time. I try to customize the content for each specific meeting and location, often pulling inspiration from topics that will be covered by other presenters earlier in the educational program. At every OPS lecture I attend, I often take notes looking for new categories and questions. I also get some great material from other OPS members who forward ideas and images to me after seeing Jeopardy in action.

Looking over the great lineup of speakers and topics scheduled for Pittsburgh, I’ve been able to choose some cool categories and begin writing questions. New or recent categories will include: Creepy Crawlies, Oma Gosh, and The ‘Burgh. Of course I’ll include some of the classics such as: Animal Kingdom, Celestial Bodies, Ex Girlfriends, Video Acuity, and OCT Rorschach Test.

Hopefully I’ll see you in Pittsburgh. I’ll be channeling my inner Alex Trebek as host of Ophthalmic Jeopardy - although it’s probably closer to the Will Ferrell’s SNL impersonation of Trebek! Ophthalmic Jeopardy is a fun, informative, and challenging way to learn. If you do attend the meeting, be sure to pay attention to all the great speakers/lectures in the Mid-Year program lineup. I’ve been known to sneak in questions at the last minute and see if everyone has been paying attention!

Hello Everyone!  

Welcome to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania! We will be having an indoor/outdoor reception to welcome you as attendees Friday evening following the meeting. This is a great opportunity to network, make new friends and see old friends. There will be a cash bar and light hors’doeuvres served in the restaurant and wonderful outdoor patio!

Pittsburgh has many outdoor adventures and events to think about! There's kayaking on the northshore through Pittsburgh's venture outdoors (https://www.ventureoutdoors.org/kayak-pittsburgh-north-shore/). The Pirates may be out of town that weekend but you can walk along the north shore and see PNC park and Heinz Field home of the Steelers.

The free shuttle from the Wyndham will take you 3 miles around the hotel and let me tell you that will take you far. If you ask to go to Penn Ave in the strip you have food, shopping and a unique historical area to tour.

Lastly if you just want to walk around the hotel vicinity there's Schenley park and plenty of unique food choices including Peace Love and Little Donuts!
