VOSS SUMMER SCHOOL  – JULY 1st-7th  2018

The Venice Ophthalmology Summer School was held in Venice, from 1th to 8th, July, 2018 in our Sala Goldoni.

As the past editions, held in 2013, 2014 , 2015 and 2017 this School confirms to be a great opportunity for young Specialists in Ophthalmology  and Faculty members to meet together, to exchange hypothesis, theories and experience, and learn the importance of the direct contact, in an unsual and stimulating location.

The harmonization of education in Ophthalmology needs direct daily contact among trainees, at least for a period of time, to share their previous experiences and to create a network for the future cultural project. The Venice Ophthalmology Summer School offers such an experience and new opportunities to young and motivated ophthalmologists.


The aim of the Venice Ophthalmology Summer School (VOSS) is to allow very young Specialists in Ophthalmology to be actively involved in a full immersion course on advanced basic and clinical topics in Ophthalmology. Besides Keynote Lectures, attendees will have the possibility of a continuous dialogue with Faculty members; they are also encouraged to present their personal experience which will be discussed in plenary sessions and they will actively participate in the presentations given by the Faculty members.

The participants are very young specialists in Ophthalmology mainly coming European countries. They will be selected through an international call. The Faculty Members are well known leaders in Ophthalmology, involved in basic research and/or clinical ophthalmology, with a special ability in teaching.

The philosophy of the VOSS is that this School is free of charge for the selected participants (double bedroom accommodation, registration, breakfast, lunch and selected dinner events). All accepted participants agree to attend VOSS 2018 from Sunday July 1th to Sunday July 8th, attending ALL scientific sessions (from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm) and the social events. No exceptions to this rules (if you are not sure to be able to follow these rules, please do not apply) ! On Sunday, July 1st, session begins at 5:00 pm and all accepted participants need to be on time.

The VOSS language is English. The venue is inside the city of Venice, not only one of the most worldwide known art cities, but historically (and currently) one of the most multiethnic and multicultural cities in the world. A place where languages, cultures and religions meet since more than 1000 years.
