The APAO Leadership Development Program Class 2019-20 participated in the Orientation sessions on 6th and 8th March 2019, at the 34th APAO Congress in Bangkok, Thailand. The two-day sessions included program introduction and an Insight Discovery Program facilitated by Mr Simon Abbott and sponsored by Allergan.
The Leadership Masterclass (previously called Mid-term Forum) was proudly hosted by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) from 9th to 11th August 2019. The three-day informative and highly interactive sessions were conducted by the 9 faculties and invited speakers from 5 countries. 20 LDP participants benefitted from the Program.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the graduation was postponed to 2021. At the first-ever APAO 2021 Virtual Congress, each participant presented online their self-initiated graduation projects on 11th September 2021. A virtual Graduation Ceremony, hosted by Prof Muhammad Moin, the LDP Acting Director, was held on the same day. Not only the Graduating Class members, but the 2021 LDP Faculty and the 2021 Orientation Class members joined to celebrate their accomplishments.
We are glad to announce the below 18 participants have now completed the APAO Leadership Development Program and successfully graduated!
