The Chicago Subspecialty Guest Series is a program which was started in 2003 in an attempt to interact more formally with members of other Ophthalmology Departments throughout the city. The format includes a reception followed by two presentations and a question and answer period.
There are also five endowed speakerships per year. These CME programs include the Arthur Light MD, Memorial Lectureship, part of the Fall Cataract-Glaucoma Symposium, two John J. Skowron, MD, Distinguished Visiting Professorships, (one being part of the Fall Cataract-Glaucoma Symposium), The Richard Gieser World Service Lecture and The Jame E. McDonald, MD Lecture.
The first Optometry Anterior Segment Disease Symposium took place in November, 2009. This two-hour presentation by Loyola faculty focuses on clinically relevant information for the optometric practitioner covering several speciality areas including ocular surface disease, glaucoma clinical trials, eyelid and orbit infection, and speciality contact lenses for corneal disease.
