COS Quarterly Conferences

The Chicago Ophthalmological Society for more than 125 years has provided ophthalmologists and residents/fellows in training a superior educational experience along with opportunities to network with colleagues from throughout Chicagoland.

Conferences include a guest speaker, as well as case presentations by residents from each of the six training programs in Chicago.  The Krill Lecture conference is jointly sponsored by the Rabb Retina Study Group and provides case presentations from members of the community.

As details are available for each meeting, links below will be activated, as well as registration.

Please Note . . .  Assuming the public health situation continues to improve, we are planning to hold our meetings this year in-person.  However, we will be "piloting" a hybrid format for the September meeting with the usual in-person gathering at the Gleacher Center and a virtual option via Zoom.
