Distinguished Visiting Professors: Lectures

Harvard Ophthalmology is proud to welcome eminent ophthalmologists from around the world who are performing cutting-edge work in their fields. Lectures are combined with discussion forums to further facilitate the exchange of information. 

Research Seminars

Research seminars and work groups are offered weekly and monthly at both Mass. Eye and Ear and Schepens Eye Research Institute of Mass Eye and Ear

Multidisciplinary, Topic-Driven, Conferences

Harvard Ophthalmology Institutes and Centers of Excellence are multidisciplinary collaborations that accelerate discovery and teamwork between clinicians and scientists who share interests and have complementary skills. Each Institute (discipline-focused) and Center (disease-focused) fosters a level of inquiry and synergy that hastens the bench-to-bedside pipeline and brings that knowledge gained to the full spectrum of blinding diseases. Institutes and Centers provide an array of educational events that range from small focus groups to distinguished lecture series and international conferences. 

Alumni Reunion and Receptions

Harvard Ophthalmology/Mass. Eye and Ear alumni bring an important perspective and value to our community. We encourage alumni to join us at various events throughout the year that are designed to cultivate an engaging social, educational, and professional networking environment.
