There will also be opportunity for trainees to give short oral presentations related to ocular oncology and win awards on both days. This conference would also be useful as an excellent refresher to established staff grade and consultant ophthalmologists and allied eye care practitioners. This event will gain you 13 CPD points.

This conference is an ideal opportunity to learn from the vast experience of leading national and international experts, and to become confident in the diagnosis and management of patients presenting with all types of ophthalmic cancers.

Gala dinner

A gala dinner is being organised the first day evening to celebrate the contribution of Professor Rennie to ocular oncology and ophthalmology. He established the Sheffield Ocular Oncology Service 32 years ago and has been a pioneering influence in developing ophthalmic oncology care in UK. The evening would be a perfect opportunity to unwind between two hard core days of knowledge.

We look forward to seeing you in Sheffield!
