The New England Ophthalmological Society (NEOS)—the second-oldest American medical specialty society in continuous existence—offers its 700+ members thoughtful and stimulating educational programs five times each year. The educational mission of NEOS resonates at every meeting, and members can receive up to 35 CME credits per year. For the 2017-2018 academic year, AM/PM sessions include:
- Pediatric ophthalmology/ Cataract (October 20, 2017)
- Diagnosis and management of dry eye and ocular surface disease/Ethics and risk management (December 1, 2017)
- Retina/Innovations (March 9, 2018)
- Glaucoma/Emerging ocular infections (April 20, 2018)
- Complications/Subspecialty sessions: neuro, oculoplastics, uveitis (June 1, 2018)
Recognized as one of the finest ophthalmic educational societies in the region, NEOS owes its history of success to its members, who actively participate to shape the future direction of the organization.
“NEOS members are our strongest voice in promoting the value of our organization, keeping our membership robust, and making a remarkable organization even better,” said Joan W. Miller, MD, past President and a member of NEOS for more than two decades. In her current role as Chair of the Programming Committee, she aims to broaden the scope of NEOS’ current offerings by adding more networking opportunities, implementing mentoring programs, and encouraging multidisciplinary collaborations to spark new ways of thinking.
