The two day meeting will include case reports, research presentations, practice updates and discussion about current challenges, both clinical and non-clinical. In remembrance of one of the society's founder members, this year's meeting will include the 'Dr John Harry Memorial Lecture', to be delivered by Professor Gary Misson.
Ophthalmology and histopathology trainees who attend will receive insights into a field of practice which is not typically covered in their training rotations, but which will be relevant when they become consultants. Trainees and students who present at the meeting will be considered for the 'Jean Campbell Award' for the best trainee presentation.
One meeting session will be devoted to peer review of cases from the National Ophthalmic Pathology EQA Scheme. EQA (External Quality Assurance) schemes are a means whereby participating histopathologists can demonstrate their continuing competence in a specialist area of practice, of which Ophthalmic Pathology is one. Society Dinner: The BAOP dinner will be held on Thursday 12 April at Ambassadors Bloomsbury Hotel, 12 Upper Woburn Place, London, WC1H 0HX. Tel: 02076935400.
