In 1988, the Archives published an editorial describing the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology (AUPO) since its founding in 1966 and the organization's "increasing involvement in important issues."1 That involvement continues in the program of the 1989 annual meeting chaired by President Steven M. Podos, MD, and in organizational changes now under way.
The AUPO began its February 1989 meeting at Captiva Island, Fla, with a special conference on the selection and evaluation of resident physicians. Educational aspects were addressed by Michael J. Gordon, PhD, of the Division of Research in Medical Education of the University of Washington, Seattle, and legal perspectives were provided by Steve Milam, JD, general counsel to the University of Washington Health Sciences Center and University Hospitals, Seattle.
Other program topics displayed the spectrum of interests of the membership. Special presentations on fund raising by professional consultants and by AUPO members reflected the realization
