JohanSemby"The COS feels like my real ophthalmology family. Without COS and those in the organization, I would probably have left ophthalmology as a resident as I felt the pressure from a socialist environment that told me again and again there is no place for faith within healthcare. But thanks to the wonderful people that are presenting at this year's annual meeting in the 'Circle of Excellence' lecture series, not only did hope return, but an assurance that it was not only possible to combine faith and ophthalmology, but that it is the very best we can do for our fellow man." - Johan Semby, MD


Johan's words express the heart of the COS leadership for the Society.  Please prayerfully consider joining us August 4-8th, in Alexandria, VA, for the 45th COS Annual Meeting

"Circle of Excellence"
Reunion of Five Past COS presidents.
  

The five past COS Presidents will address subjects that are at the heart of the Society – Being a Christ-honoring ophthalmologist.  Their topics will touch on our Christian mission, our character, our practice, and our interactions with the people God has placed before us – our patients. 

Circle of Focused Excellence2

This is a symposium you will not get anywhere else and you will not want to miss! 

  • Brad Farris: "Restoration of Spiritual Sight to the Blind" - a look back at the purpose and intent of the COS by the founding fathers and how to avoid "mission drift" in a culture of change.
  • Mike Siatkowski: "The CREW and Character Development" - how to promote societal impact, resilience and wellness in practice through perseverance and character development.
  • Sterling Cannon: "The Spiritual Balance: Considering Human Behavior and our Faith in Elective Surgery" - a look at the psychological and spiritual aspects of elective surgery to help lower postoperative frustrations.
  • Steve Demick: "The intersection of Faith and the Business of Ophthalmology" - understanding business principles to enhance eye care from a biblical world view.
  • Stan Pletcher: "Who do YOU want to be when you grow up?" - a discussion about characteristics of a role model in ophthalmology and how that translates to an integration of faith, excellent patient care and surgical skills.
