The 2019 OPS Mid-Year Educational Program is being held in the ‘Magic City’, Miami, Florida.
The program is scheduled to take place on June 7-8, 2019, at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute/Anne Bates Leach Eye Center, located on the medical campus of the University of Miami Health System.
Join us for two full days (16 hours of CECs) of thought provoking education including topics such as Innovations in Pediatric Photography at Bascom Palmer, The Slit Lamp, Ultra-Wide Field Imaging, Dry ARMD, Zika Virus Updates, as well as the newest Swept Source OCT. The program comprises leading physician experts and eye imaging specialists in their respective fields. Two accredited Vendor Forums are scheduled, which will enhance your practical knowledge and hands-on experience.
Miami is truly the ‘Magic City’ so nicknamed because of its rapid growth in finance, commerce, media and entertainment. At over 53 square miles in size, Miami is neighbor to Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach and the Florida Everglades, and is truly a marvel in greater southern Florida. Also known as America’s Cleanest City, it has been known as a stepping stone for art, finance, and Latin American cultures with the University of Miami also being host to a diversity of medical research.
So, mark your calendars for June 7-8, 2019 and plan your trip to Florida for a great program, catch up with colleagues, and make new friends in the Magic City!
