Webinar: Challenges in Vitreoretinal Surgery

Challenges in Vitreoretinal surgery

The Calgary Ophthalmology Program and University of Calgary are organizing an online CME webinar as part of their retina grand rounds on October 21st from 7 pm to 8:30 pm ET (5 pm to 6:30 pm MT).

Short intraoperative videos demonstrating challenging vitreoretinal surgeries will be presented by retina surgeons and their current fellows. The speakers will share their experience pertaining to the management of such cases.

The goal of this CME accredited webinar is to share clinical experience among retina surgeons and educate fellows on managing these challenging cases. At the end of this webinar, learners will be able to implement practice changes based on “pearls” and take-away messages provided by the speakers.
