ABOUT THE PROGRAM

 

APVRS Leadership Development Program (LDP)

The APVRS Leadership Development Program (LDP) has been conducted annually since 2017. Directed by Prof Dennis Lam, the LDP aims to provide systematic orientation for cultivating future leaders in the vitreoretinal field of the Asia-Pacific region through workshops, one-on-one mentorship scheme and panel discussions.

Benefits

Induction and Orientation

This 1-day program during the APVRS Congress will introduce participants to program faculty. The program will also cover in-depth aspects of leadership development including communication skills, project management, advocacy and teamwork.

Self-initiated Project

Participants must complete a self-initiated project and make a presentation at the graduation.

One-on-one Mentorship Scheme

Participants will each be assigned a Mentor, who will oversee their development and progress during the program. Partici¬≠pants may have a chance to have a one-week on-site visit at Mentors’ workplace, allowing them to have close encounters and interaction with their Mentors, as well as close observation of their work.

Graduation

Participants who have successfully and satisfactorily completed all elements of the Program will be formally recognized during the second APVRS Congress and awarded a Certificate of Achievement of the APVRS LDP Based on individual per­formance, participants may also receive Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.
