New this year

You told us; we listened! We're bringing a new perspective to the 2010 Annual Meeting in Québec City. We've kept track of your evaluation comments over the past few years and we've made changes.

Saturday start - This scientific program starts on Saturday and runs through Sunday and Monday. Wet labs and workshops are scheduled for Tuesday morning. For your convenience, we've scheduled the bulk of the meeting over the weekend, and we're wrapping things up by noon on Tuesday so that you can go home earlier. View the program-at-a-glance

Wet labs and workshops - These Tuesday morning workshops are a great opportunity for small group, practical, hands-on learning. This year's lineup includes a Cataract lab, Cornea Skills Lab: DALK for the Corneal Surgeon, and Glaucoma New Surgical Technologies. Also, look for an EMR workshop and integrating new technology into your practice. Enrollment is limited; sign up early! Wet labs and workshops

Young Ophthalmologist Program - This program helps new residents transition from training to practice and network with peers. Workshops are tailored for residents and ophthalmologists in their first few years of practice and are endorsed by the COS Residents' committee. Attend the workshops and then join the COS Board for lunch. Monday, June 28, 8:30 am to 1 pm. Young Ophthalmologist Program

COS celebration - We've re-vamped and revved up the COS social event! You won't want to miss La grande fête: a night of good food, great music, and dancing. Bring your family and celebrate Québeçois style! Experience traditional Gallic charm and warm hospitality in the iconic Château Frontenac. Join us for a relaxed gourmet dinner reception featuring local ingredients and cultural flavours. The Painchaud Family will provide an evening of great music, guaranteed to get you up dancing.
