SYM16 Who Will Lead the Ophthalmic Team?

Combined meeting with the Young Ophthalmologist Committee

As the medical field transitions through a pivotal point, with increasing demands on efficient delivery of quality health care, we will provide valuable tools with which young ophthalmologists can emerge as leaders of the eye care team. During this symposium, we will highlight why ophthalmologists are best positioned to be leaders of the eye care team and how to develop the specific skills needed to be an effective and successful leader. We will emphasize strategies necessary to position ophthalmologists as leaders through local, regional, and national advocacy efforts. YOs will learn why they are the key to the future leadership position in our field. They will also learn about the skills and strategies necessary to emerge as successful and effective leaders.
