Events & Continuing Medical Education


Welcome to event listings of the Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences (DOVS) at SickKids. 

DOVS provides continuing medical education to practicing ophthalmologists and health-care professionals both within and outside of SickKids. Activities include the annual Jack Crawford Day, the Lloyd Morgan lectureship series, and weekly rounds. 

Every Spring, we hold the annual Jack Crawford Day, our Paediatric Ophthalmology Conference, attracting speakers worldwide. This conference honours the late Dr. Jack S. Crawford, former Ophthalmologist-in-Chief for the Hospital for Sick Children, whose career was dedicated to advancing the specialty of paediatric ophthalmology and the care of children’s eye problems.

The 30th Annual Jack Crawford Day was held on April 4, 2019 and focussed on Advances That May Change Your Practice in Paediatric Ophthalmology.  The day included topics relevant to both pediatric and general eye specialists including cross-linking news, orbital clues, understanding large scale studies, vision screening, glasses news, low vision upgrades, genetic testing and a few more.
