Alerts in Ophthalmology

Published: August 2011

Alerts are a CCM original publication. CCM realizing the need to fill the gap in continuing medical education in the field of everyday clinical practice, has published the innovative series of Alerts, in association with ACP, ASCO and other prominent Medical Societies. In every issue of each Alerts, the reader will find news of special interest, a highlight article and announcements of forthcoming Congresses and Meetings pertaining to each specialty.
