Continuing Education in Ophthalmology. 

—Basic and Clinical Science Course.  —The American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology announces an expanded program of continuing education, which includes the Ophthalmology Basic and Clinical Science Course. This course presents the essential core of ophthalmic knowledge in eight sections, each section covering related aspects of basic and clinical science as a closely integrated unit that associates fundamental scientific knowledge with patients, disease processes, structures, and symptoms. This format emphasizes overall concepts, facilitates important correlations, and provides the multiple interrelationships that stimulate learning and retention. As noted hereafter, the Sections reflect this organization of basic and clinical science.
