All didactic teaching and clinical conferences in ophthalmology and plastic surgery are available to the oculoplastic fellow. These include a Board Review course in most major subjects. Conferences in related departments such as Pathology, Dermatology, Maxillofacial, Neurosurgery, ENT/Head and Neck Surgery, and Neuroradiology are also open to the fellow who is expected to supervise clinical conferences whenever appropriate. The fellow has a primary role in supervising residents at Scheie Eye Institute, Children's Hospital and the Veterans Administration Hospital. Monthly multidisciplinary, problem-solving conferences are held at Children's Hospital and at the Center for Human Appearance. In addition, every other year there is a complete review of the BCSC manual on the Orbit, Lids and Lacrimal apparatus.
The fellow may elect to participate in the Division of Plastic Surgery's Orbital and Facial Dissection Course and will be given an opportunity to be directly involved with formal presentations. In addition, each year there is usually at least one Saturday morning symposium at the Scheie Eye Institute devoted to oculoplastic subjects.
