40th Annual Alumni/Residents Day


R. Michael Siatkowski, MD, delivers the 21st Annual Kambara Lecture.

Friday, June 17, the Department of Ophthalmology faculty, alumni and residents convened for the 40th annual Alumni/Residents' Day, a program that celebrates the graduation of our third-year residents and instructors while also welcoming our new first-year residents. The event includes research presentations, a graduation reception, and the centerpiece of the event: the George K. Kambara, MD, Distinguished Visiting Professor. The event, which was webcast live to a worldwide audience, was organized by program director Natalie C. Kerr, MD, FACS, professor of Ophthalmology and director of the HEI Residency Program, and Mary Ellen Hoehn, MD, assistant professor of Ophthalmology and director of special events for HEI.

The morning began with case and research presentations by our residents. Next, the 21st annual Kambara Lecture was presented by R. Michael Siatkowski, MD, the James P. Luton Professor of Ophthalmology and vice chair for Academic Affairs at Dean McGee Eye Institute at the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Siatkowski's excellent lecture was titled, "Potential Pitfalls in Pediatric Neuro-ophthalmology: Avoiding Common Errors." During breaks in the program, attendees viewed posters featuring recent HEI research studies. Then, following Dr. Siatkowski's lecture, several of our faculty members presented discussions of their recent research.

We offer our deepest gratitude to Dr. Siatkowski for his participation in the 40th Annual Alumni/Residents' Day.
