Course Information

About

The practice of pediatric ophthalmology is constantly changing. Clinicians are faced with the challenge of keeping up-to-date with new information and strategically incorporating those advances into their daily practice. “What’s New in Children’s Eye Health: Strabismus” is designed to address gaps in knowledge and competence regarding the impact of strabismus on visual function in children. In an innovative teaching format, members from the department of Ophthalmology at Boston Children’s Hospital present the information using a TED talk-style lecture format to promote a novel and engaging approach to transfer of medical knowledge.
