Marion K. Humphries, Jr. M.D. Symposium

The Department of Ophthalmology hosts each year in the fall an annual conference for physicians and technicians. 

The symposium is named in honor of Marion K. Humphries, Jr., MD, who was the first Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Virginia.

Humphries Symposium Physician Information

Humphries Physician Symposium is dedicated to providing the clinical Ophthalmologist with opportunities to increase knowledge and competence related to the most up-to-date diagnostic and therapeutic interventions and to reflect on how this information might lead to changes in their daily practice.

The University of Virginia School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University designates this educational activity for a maximum of 6.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The University awards 0.1 CEU (Continuing Education Unit) per contact hour to each non-physician participant who successfully completes this educational activity. The CEU is a nationally recognized unit of measure for continuing education and training activities that meet specific educational planning requirements. The University maintains a permanent record of participants who have been awarded CEUs.

Humphries Symposium Technician Information

The Humphries Technician Symposium began in 1990 as a JCAHPO accredited supplement to the Department's Humphries Physician Program.

The Technician Program is hosted by the ophthalmic staff of the UVA Department of Ophthalmology and welcomes approximately 100 registrants each year. The Program is held in conjunction with the physician program.

The program is designed for all Ophthalmic Medical Personnel (OMP) including Ophthalmic Assistants, Technicians, Technologists, Photographers, Orthoptists, Nurses, and other personnel. Certification is not required to attend.

Each year lectures are designed to fit specific criteria for training Ophthalmic Medical Personnel in the newest technology and surgical techniques as well as review of core skills and knowledge. The one day program consists of 12 to 16 short lectures presented by the physicians and staff of the Department.

The Technician Program aims to offer five or more Group A JCAHPO credits and also seeks continuing education credits from OPS and AOC. A Certificate of Attendance is awarded to each participant at the end of the day.

Paid registrants are provided with a continental breakfast, coffee break, and a catered lunch.
