Over a thousand delegates are expected at the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologist (RANZCO) 48th Annual Scientific Congress at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre this November.
As well as guests from across Australia and New Zealand, an international contingent from the Asia-Pacific region is expected. One of the attendees to the congress will be Club Melbourne Ambassador, Professor Hugh Taylor AC.
Professor Taylor and his fellow ophthalmologists will discuss the latest developments as well as network with other practitioners. He still highly values the social component of conferences.
“They bring people together. You can learn about the advancements in ophthalmology over the internet, but there is nothing quite like the value you get out of discussing it face to face. The social interaction is a very important part of events like RANZCO 2016. It helps creates a cohesiveness in the sector,” Professor Taylor said.
