Call for Education Course Proposals

Organize a pre-conference course

ARVO is now accepting proposals from ARVO members who wish to organize an education course.

Submission Deadline: Monday, July 9, 2018 at 8am EST.

Review the Education Course Proposal Guidelines, collect the information needed for the proposal then submit the proposal online within one sitting.

The courses will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019 in Vancouver, Canada. Proposals may be for a half-day (8:00am-noon or 12:30-4:30pm) or full day (8:00am-4:30pm) course. A 15-minute refreshment break is included in the morning and/or afternoon, and a one-hour lunch break is included for full day courses. Boxed lunches are provided for full day courses.

Proposals must be submitted by ARVO members per the proposal guidelines document and are considered for selection by the Professional Development and Education Committee (PDEC). Decision notifications will be sent the week of August 6-10, 2018.

The proposal should describe an identified educational need that requires in-depth review and discussion, includes participant interaction with experts and does not fit within the current annual meeting structure. Course agenda items should build upon and relate to one another in order to meet specified learning objectives.

Course topics may be scientific, skills-related, fulfill professional development needs or otherwise be of direct benefit to ARVO members. Topics that are likely to attract 100 or more registrants are highly desired.

Please complete one of the following agenda templates. You will be asked to upload it as part of the proposal. You will also be asked to upload a biosketch for each of the proposed organizers. The biosketch can be in NIH or equivalent format.
