We have continued with the tradition started in Cancun 2019 to have an open call to our National Societies for our PAAO Awards at our Pan-American Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina next year.
This month, my “Chat with the President” is with Dr. Rodolfo Yi, president of the Panamanian Society of Ophthalmology.
The Guillermo Picó Santiago Basic Course of Ophthalmology 2023 will be in person. The course is sponsored by the Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology and the University of Puerto Rico.
We just held our XXVI Pan-American Regional Course in conjunction with Bascom Palmer’s XLIV Inter-American Course (CURSO) October 16-19, 2022 in Miami, FL. The event was a resounding success with more than 600 attendees and was a wonderful opportunity to get together with friends and colleagues in Miami to learn about the latest in clinical problems in ophthalmology.
This month, the PAAO partnered with Bascom Palmer Eye Institute to organize the joint 26th Pan-American Regional Course of Ophthalmology and the 44th Interamerican Course of Clinical Ophthalmology. More than 600 ophthalmologists from all over the world attended.
