Uveitis Course Venice



7th Uveitis Course Venice




March 2nd – March 8th, 2019



          Topics Faculty | Registration | Registration Fee | Grant Application



The International Uveitis Study Group (IUSG) under the auspices of the International Council

of Ophthalmology (ICO) will be conducting the 7th Uveitis Course, which will be held in Venice, Italy in March of 2019.


It will again take place at the Venice International University where participants will reside for the entire duration of the course. Besides covering the whole field of uveitis, special topics will be offered in four small interactive groups: to learn how to evaluate uveitis patients, to rationally develop a differential diagnosis, to interpret fluorescent and indocyanine green angiographic findings, and to optimize immunosuppressive therapy. The interactive program will allow in depth discussion on management of even complicated uveitis issues.


The course will be limited to 54 participants. The faculty is composed of highly experienced uveitis specialists who are well known for their teaching skills.


I hope we can welcome you in Venice.
