Théa & education: Annual contest organised by Théa
Record participation for the 6th edition of TROPHY
Education and knowledge-sharing have always been a tradition for the Chibret family. Théa supports numerous projects and educational activities in ophthalmology.
TROPHY, otherwise known as ‘Théa inteRnational cOntest of clinical cases in PatHologies of the eYe’, is an annual contest which aims primarily to encourage interns and heads of ophthalmology clinics to play a prominent role in their field by submitting results of clinical cases and their experiences.
Since its launch in 2012, TROPHY has continued to grow, and has now become an international event.
For the 6th edition, 220 young ophthalmologists from more than 21 countries submitted a clinical case on the topic ‘new methods for the management of diseases of the ocular surface’.
Three winners were confidentially chosen by an international jury of ophthalmologist experts. The three winners are invited to present their clinical case at the Théa symposium organised in parallel with the ARVO 2018 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The president of this 6th edition, Professor Elisabeth Messmer, presented an award to the 3 winners:
- First Place: Dr. Kara (Turkey)
- Second Place: Dr. Mamas (Greece)
- Third Place: Dr. Giannacarre (Italy)
The 7th edition, TROPHY 2019, is open; visit the website www.thea-trophy.com to submit a case on the following topic: "management of inflammation of the ocular surface"
