About the Course
The annual Duke Glaucoma Fellows course is a one-day course which will provide glaucoma fellows with a comprehensive overview of current practices and controversies in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma and hands-on experience in the latest surgical techniques. Fellows will be able to try out new surgical techniques and instrumentation and discuss how recent clinical trial evidence translates into the clinical setting.
A variety of topics will be presented to stimulate the exchange of ideas. The course is designed to have integrated surgical wet-labs, cutting-edge talks, and case panel discussions.
The mission of Duke Glaucoma team is to develop trainees with a fundamental understanding of glaucoma diagnosis and management while promoting intellectual curiosity. Duke Glaucoma is dedicated to the principal that research into disease mechanisms, patient care and new technologies is the primary method by which we improve the outcomes of patients.
