Course Description

The International Retinal Imaging Symposium (IntRIS 2018) will feature a series of lectures that will focus on the latest developments in retinal imaging, including: adaptive optics, fundus autofluorescence, ultra-widefield imaging, spectral domain and swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT), and OCT angiography. This conference will include a full day of lectures by many of the world’s experts in retinal imaging who will speak on recent innovations that have occurred in this rapidly advancing field.

Our world-renowned faculty will aim to familiarize course participants with the newest evolving technologies and will guide and instruct our registrants in the application of these advanced systems and in the interpretation of novel imaging findings. This will help our participants better manage their patients with macular and retinal disease and achieve better patient outcomes in their practices.

We welcome your participation at IntRIS 2018 which promises to provide insight and understanding in retinal imaging and showcase the integral importance of innovative retinal imaging in the evaluation and management of retinal disease.

Doheny/Stein Case Conference (DSCC)

Please also join us for the Doheny/Stein Case Conference (DSCC) to take place in the RPB Auditorium at the Stein Eye Institute on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 7:30 am to 11:30 am. Each case presentation will include diagnostic and/or management dilemmas. To register for the Doheny/Stein Case Conference, click here.

Accreditation

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 8.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
