PROGRAMME

The topic of the 2004 Registrars' Conference is Neuro-Ophthalmology. We are pleased to welcome both Peter Savino and Creig Hoyt as our invited speakers. With a wealth of experience as clinicians and as teachers their input will be much appreciated by registrars at all levels. Combining with Sydney based specialists and registrars this year's conference aims to simplify but also provide an insight into the intricacies of Neuro-Ophthalmology.

Upon registration the delegates will receive an orientation package. This will include the full scientific program and a CD containing the lecture materials supplied by the presenters.
