Workshops provide valuable hands-on learning opportunities. If you’re attending AAO 2023 this November, join us on 3 November, 1:30-4:30 PM, US Pacific Time, Room South 206, for our Ophthalmic Educators Workshop: New Technologies in Teaching, co-sponsored by the Ophthalmology Foundation and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. This workshop is eligible for CME credits.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Simulation-Based Education (SBE) are hot topics in medical education. As an educator, you will learn how to understand and effectively utilize them in professional instruction. This interactive workshop provides medical educators with an overview of the potential applications, benefits, and challenges of incorporating AI in medical education and generates a conversation exchange about SBE experiences, hurdles, and potential solutions to overcome them.

Support for the OF’s participation is provided in part by Carl Zeiss Meditec USA, Inc.

In addition, visit the Ophthalmology Foundation and the International Ophthalmological Fellowship Foundation (IOFF) Saturday, Sunday, or Monday at booth #7633, across from the AAO in the West exhibition hall.
