We are excited for the Vit-­Buckle Society (VBS) Annual Meeting happening in Las Vegas at the Bellagio, April 13 – 15, 2023!

In conjunction with the annual meeting, Evolve Medical Education will once again be hosting the very unique VBS Fellows’ Foray CME Event. As part of this event, we will be awarding 20 travel grants to US and international vitreoretinal fellows to attend the VBS Fellows’ Program and the VBS Meeting. This incredible opportunity includes a travel grant covering the registration fees for the VBS annual meeting (April 13-15, 2023), travel costs (up to $500), and four {4} nights of shared lodging.  

To be considered for this exciting opportunity, you must submit a surgical video of no more than 2 minutes in length, to:  https://uploadmypresentation.com/evolve/fellows-foray/, by January 8, 2023 at 11:59 PM Eastern. Please note that only one surgical video per fellow may be submitted. Submitted surgical videos, including the file title, should not have any program or personal identifiers, but they may include a voiceover, as long as it does not identify the program, fellow or attending physician involved in the video. Click the link from last year’s program to see examples: https://evolvemeded.com/course/VBS2022_Enduring

A panel consisting of VBS and CONNECT members will judge each surgical video based upon originality, degree of difficulty, surgeon’s skill level, and quality of video (HD preferred).

Of the 20 fellows who are awarded a travel grant, the top 8 winners will present their surgical video at the Fellows’ Program on April 13, 2023, in Vegas. Moreover, the CONNECT Network will award the fellow who submitted the single best video the prestigious $1,500 CONNECT Network Grant and a limited edition VBS Belt Buckle.

Please share this email with other fellows you feel would be interested in participating in this program. Feel free to contact Susan Gallagher-Pecha (Susan@EvolveMedEd..com) with any questions.
