Each year, the Truhlsen Eye Institute will host nine lectures as part of the Distinguished Lecture Series, in addition to the Gifford-Truhlsen Conference. There will be six named lectures over the course of the year and they are: The Stanley M. Truhlsen, MD Lecture, The Gifford Memorial Lecture, The Judy and C. David Fritch, MD Lecture, The Carl B. Camras, MD Lecture, The Carl J. Troia, MD Memorial Lecture, and the Bernstein-Kroon Memorial Lecture.
The visiting speakers are highly accomplished and nationally recognized doctors and researchers from across the country, who will share their knowledge and experience with our ophthalmic and optometric medical community. The goal is to improve and make a lasting impact on patient care across all subspecialties of the vision community.
- Provide Educational opportunities for Department Faculty, Fellows and Residents
- Establish the Department as the “go to” place for high quality educational ophthalmic and optometric education in the community
- Develop broad regional support for the “Unity in Community” program and establish Omaha as a regionally recognized Ophthalmic educational center of excellence by unifying the vision community through education and collaboration
- To bring highly accomplished and nationally recognized speakers to UNMC to both provide education across a wide array of subspecialties as well as to increase national presence.
