January 31-February 2, 2014, the Hamilton Eye Institute held the Annual Basic and Clinical Science Review Course. This free program, which was offered to all residents and fellows in training, was organized by second-year ophthalmology residents T. Amerson Pegram, MD, Michael Hood, MD, and Patrick Risch, MD. It provided a series of didactic lectures by subspecialty experts in the field based on the core material from the Basic and Clinical Science Series published by the AAO.

Lecturers at the event included members of our own faculty as well as special guest speaker Kenneth W. Wright, MD, director of the Wright Center for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus in Costa Mesa, Calif, who delivered an exceptional lecture on the anatomy of eye muscles. He also donated a signed copy of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (3rd ed.), a leading pediatric ophthalmology textbook co-edited by Dr. Wright, to HEI's Haik Ophthalmology Library. We are grateful to Dr. Wright for his outstanding contributions to the ongoing education of our residents and fellows.
