Paediatric & Optometry Symposia, & SOA-Sweden Launch Event

St John Eye Hospital

Monday 27th April 2020

Welcome to St John’s Postgraduate teaching program in Jerusalem.

0900 – 1100: History & Hospital Summit at St John

1200: SOA-Sweden Launch

1300 – 1830: Paediatric Ophthalmology Summit

1300 – 1830: Parallel St John Optometry Symposium

At this symposium, we are hosting a half day of teaching in the field of paediatric ophthalmology. We welcome colleagues from Sweden who established the St John exchange between St Erik’s Hospital and Jerusalem in 2019. We shall also hold the inaugural SOA-Sweden event immediately before the scientific part of the meeting.

In parallel, we are also proud to present the first St John Optometry symposium, which will also take place in the Eye Hospital. This is supported by colleagues from the Priory of St John in South Africa.

The afternoon will begin with lunch at the Ambassador Hotel, sponsored by an industry partner. We follow this with the Swedish SOA opening event in the Eye Hospital, and then the medical symposium and the parallel optometry meeting. The theme will be paediatric ophthalmology, with international speakers from Sweden and the UK.

In the evening, we shall enjoy an informal dinner in Notre Dame for any who wish to join us (this event not included in the registration fee).
