WHAT: Dinner and Networking for Indiana YOs
WHEN: September 12, 2014 - 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
WHERE: Hine Hall, IUPUI Campus
Young ophthalmologists (YOs) face a unique set of challenges in their transition from training to practice. The core purpose of the IAO’s Young Ophthalmologist (YO) Committee is to address the educational needs of younger or new to practice ophthalmologists, communicate their concerns to IAO leadership and support their membership and involvement in IAO activities. The major focus of these efforts is directed toward residency, fellowship and the first five years of practice.
This year the IAO YO Committee is planning to host a dinner during the Midwest Glaucoma Symposium exclusively for YOs. The dinner will be held on Friday, September 12th following the IAO reception. The event will start at 6:00 pm and end by 9:00 pm. We are holding the dinner at Hine Hall on the IUPUI campus. This will be a very casual event with a lot of time for networking with your colleagues.
Members of the YO Committee along with leading consultants and experts will present an interactive, panel-based program addressing topics vital to residents, fellows and YOs in their first few years of practice. This year's high-energy and engaging program will cover the following key issues :
What I Wish I Knew When I Started Practice
Understanding the MOC Requirements for the ABO
Advocacy – The Importance of Participating
Marketing +/- Social Media
Legal Tips and Pearls
