The 4th Annual Duke Fellows’ Advanced Vitreous Surgery (fAVS) will showcase cutting-edge vitreoretinal surgical techniques, therapeutic pharmacologic treatment strategies, and advanced ophthalmic imaging - all geared towards North American and International rising 2nd year Surgical and Medical Retina and Uveitis fellows.
The program, derived from the broader Duke Advanced Vitreous Surgery (AVS) course, is designed to deliver informative, cutting-edge talks, superior surgical video-based interactions, and a spirit of collegiality to engage faculty and fellows with each other.
The fAVS course will have fellow-specific surgical wet labs, fellow-directed case and surgical videos, and a section covering topics that every fellow needs to know as they make the transition from first year to their second year of fellowship. Medical retina and uveitis fellows will benefit from advanced concepts in retinal imaging and drug pharmacotherapy. We will also focus on practical advice on job searches and contract negotiations.
Free registration, travel stipend, and lodging is available to fellows that have not attended fAVS before. Fellows that have previously attended are welcome to attend again for a nominal fee.
