New England College of Optometry’s Sunday Series offers professional continuing education on a variety of optometric topics. All programs are COPE-accredited courses intended to augment clinical skills and promote excellence in patient care.
2018 - 2019 Sunday Series
The Sunday Series programs are held at the 424 Beacon Street campus from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM. The fall season will include:
- September 23, 2018: Systemic Disease and Case Challenges
Speakers: Drs. Carlo Pelino and Matt Garston
Try finding a systemic disease that does not manifest in the eye and Drs. Carlo Pelino and Matt Garston will dispel the myth by taking you on a journey that leads the way back to your patient and their specific presenting problem. Fascinating cases presented by two legendary clinicians will challenge existing clinical decision-making precepts while providing a comprehensive approach to arriving at the correct diagnosis.
NOTE: This CE event takes place during Alumni Reunion weekend.
- December 2, 2018: Retina Grand Rounds
We also encourage you to participate in our complimentary, COPE-accredited online Continuing Education programs.
