VBS Academic Calendar

The much-anticipated VBS Academic Calendar for 2024-2025 is here, packed with an array of medical rounds, sugical discussions, and the much anticipated annual meeting. This calendar promises to be your ultimate guide to a year filled with learning, growth, and inspiration. So save the dates and get those cases ready for submission. Your submission may be showcased at one of these meetings!

Each session is hosted online via Zoom and are open to all VBS members and guests. We especially encourage fellows and residents to join and for faculty to invite your trainees to submit cases and participate. As the date for each meeting draws closer, links for each session and submission guidelines will become available. Please mark your calendars!

Schedule for the 2024-2025 Academic Year

Learning how to do retina surgery can be challenging, especially when you’re juggling the other demands of being a new fellow. We invite retina fellows (and others interested in improving their surgical skills) to join us for a webinar discussion series based on Vit-Buckle Academy cases and surgeries. For our first webinar on 7/31/2024 at 8:30pm EST, Kyle Kovacs and Jay Sridhar will moderate a session discussing diabetic vitrectomy and macular surgery. Sruthi Arepalli and Katherine Talcott will join as panelists. Please join us!

This online meeting is intended to be an active and informal discussion of retina surgical concepts geared specifically towards fellows and attendings in early stages of practice. For each session, we will present 5-6 surgical videos from a larger pool of submitted videos, followed by an excellent panel discussion. At the end of the session, attendees will vote on the top video. The winning fellow will be entered for a chance to present at a future VBS meeting.

The VBA Fellows online session features vitreoretinal fellows from across the country/internationally.

Like the VBS Surgical Rounds, this will be an informal discussion of some of the most interesting medical retina cases, directed towards fellows and retina specialists in their first few years of practice. At the end of the session, the best case presented between the October and January session will be selected and the winning fellow will be able to present their case at an upcoming VBS Annual Meeting
