This monthly clinical conference, led by Alon Kahana, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, aims to provide multidisciplinary guidance in the active care of patients with thyroid eye disease. Much like a “tumor board,” the collaborative case presentations and discussions provide both clinical insights and educational opportunities for any clinician with an interest in thyroid related ophthalmopathy/orbitopathy. Research protocols and evidence based clinical care are important aspects of discussion. Conference members have included endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, nuclear medicine specialists, rheumatologists, oculoplastic surgeons, neuroophthalmologists and strabismus surgeons, as well as scientists and trainees from all disciplines.
This event continues to be a CME accredited activity.
The conference is held monthly at 5:30-6:30 pm, usually on Thursdays although the schedule may change to accommodate scheduling conflicts. Interested clinicians and medical trainees should contact the conference administrators to add their email address to the list, for access to communications on upcoming meetings.
