National Advisory Board
The Schepens International Society was founded by a group of ophthalmologists who are former fellows, trainees and associates of Charles L. Schepens, MD, trained in the field of vitreo-retinal diseases and related areas of vision research. Present members include other distinguished vitreo-retinal specialists interested in the purposes of the Society.
All members recognize that they are extremely fortunate to have received such training when tens of thousands of young ophthalmologists are lacking the means or have no access to adequate modern training; therefore, members of SIS want to share their knowledge with these young ophthalmologists. A major method by which the Society carries out its mission is by holding periodic meetings at various locations worldwide where knowledge is disseminated though paper presentations, scientific exhibits, posters and courses. SIS makes every effort to provide fellowships to meritorious candidates for further training.
The Society fosters the development of friendly relationships between ophthalmologists in all parts of the world and promotes a spirit of cooperation and mutual support between the Society's members.
