The Chicago Subspecialty Guest Series is a program which was started in 2003 to facilitate more formal interaction with members of other Ophthalmology Departments throughout the city. The format includes a reception followed by two presentations and a question and answer session.
There are also six endowed speakerships per year. These CME programs include the Arthur Light, MD Memorial Lectureship, two John J. Skowron, MD Distinguished Visiting Professorships, the Richard Gieser World Service Lecture, the James E. McDonald, MD Lecture and the Mark J. Daily, MD Retina Lecture.
The first Current Concepts in Eye Care for the Optometric Practioner 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.
