NEW! UPFRONT CASES
(Unknown Patients for Residents in Ophthalmology or Neurology Training) is a NANOS/JNO joint project aimed at piquing the interest of medical students, as well as ophthalmology and neurology residents before they have made final career plans, in order to expose them to what we do. Selected cases will be in a citable format and presented as a narrated PowerPoint.
INTERESTED? Click here to submit a case. If your case is selected, you will be contacted by NANOS and sent further instructions for developing the case presentation. Please note, a NANOS member who is a neuro-ophthalmologist must agree to be an author/mentor for any trainee/non-member submissions. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
NEED INSPIRATION? Check out Case 1 below and visit the JNO website to view Cases 2-4.
2021 COMPLIMENTARY JNO NOMINATIONS
NANOS is now accepting nominations for 75 free subscriptions to the JNO.
WHO CAN BE NOMINATED?
- Priority will be given to Neuro-Ophthalmology fellows who are not current members of NANOS (i.e. current residents starting their Neuro-Ophthalmology fellowship in the coming year or current fellows whose fellowship will continue into the next academic year).
- Ophthalmology or Neurology residents with an interest in Neuro-Ophthalmology may also be nominated; however, fellows in Neuro-Ophthalmology will have priority.
- If you know of another deserving individual whom you would like to nominate, please feel free to describe the circumstances in the nomination form. We will consider these on a case-by-case basis if we have not exceeded our 75 free JNO's allotment with fellows and residents.
WHEN? The deadline for nominations is Thursday, April 15.

DEI TASKFORCE REMINDER
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to the NANOS culture and we are committed to creating an equitable and inclusive Society for all.
