How Congress reflects our values
Inclusion – we opened the call for sessions to the wider ophthalmic community to create a rich and diverse programme. We will continue to deliver an online version of Congress to facilitate those who find it hard to travel due to geography, disability or caring responsibilities;
Innovation – for 2023 we are including greater opportunities for trainees to present their research during rapid-fire sessions during the breaks. We are also for the first time working with an overseas society – the Asia Pacific Vitreo – Retinal Society to create a session.
Improvement – Feedback from our delegates is invaluable in creating the next year’s Congress. We have listened to the feedback and included more case-based sessions and continued the Congress on demand;
Integrity – Congress is a chance for the UK ophthalmic community to meet and learn and open the call for suggestions has enabled the College to be open and transparent in creating the programme.
