Running concurrently with the POS 57th Annual Meeting was the 42nd Annual Meeting for Ophthalmic Personnel. This year, 148 attendees (ophthalmic technicians, assistants, coders, photographers and front staff) attended this full-day program. The well-respected program is designed specifically for ophthalmic personnel to enhance the quality, expertise and safety of ophthalmic patient care.
The program featured a hybrid of plenary and breakout sessions, all of which were approved for 1.0 IJCAHPO credit. Participants selected their own Agenda in the afternoon, choosing from several front- and back-office courses. The popular, Ophthalmic JEOPARDY! session returned and offered as a plenary session for all to enjoy. The session educated audience members by providing ophthalmic ‘pearls for their practice’ in a fun and interactive learning environment.
Course directors Pamela Rath, MD, Avni Vyas, MD and Zachary Koretz, MD worked tirelessly to plan this high-level educational offering. The Society depends and relies on local expertise and talent to present each session. This year was no exception, with local physicians and health care professionals providing quality presentations. The course directors would like to thank all Pittsburgh Ophthalmology Society (POS) members who participated as a speaker for the program.
