Welcome to the Website of the
Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology
Medical Student Educators
In preparation for the 2015 meeting of the AUPO in Tucson, we invite you to submit proposals for presentations. Please let us know about anything you're working on that may be of interest to the larger group. The theme of this year's AUPO MSE workshop at the annual meeting will be "Meeting the Milestones, Bucking the Trends"-- how we buck the trend (that is, being excluded form the curriculum) is what our efforts are all about.
If you have work that you would like to present at the workshop, please send an abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Happy New Year (a bit belated). Please help us reach our new years resolution: to get as many individuals signed up on the Directors of Clinical Skills (DOCS) website as possible so we can begin to NETWORK! If you have not yet registered please go to http://directorsofclinicalskillscourses.webs.com and do so ASAP (it's quick). Please also ask any other faculty at your (or another) institution who are leaders in clinical skills courses to join us, too (and let us know if you are no longer a director and do not wish to receive future communications.) Future emails regarding DOCS meetings, the newsletter, questions for the membership, etc... will only be sent to those registered on the site.
We recently received this information from Joanne Conroy, Chief Health Officer at AAMC.
