Read EyeNet’s MIPS 2023 resources. EyeNet developed—with support from Regeneron—MIPS 2023: A Primer and Reference (PDF). Starting in December 2022, as content for each section was completed, it was posted online (see links below) ahead of print. Furthermore, guides to what’s new with MIPS were also published online in December (see "What's New for 2023," below) ahead of print publication in the January (Part 1) and February (Part 2) issues of EyeNet.
The Academy can help you succeed at MIPS. The Academy has developed a rich range of ophthalmic-specific tools and resources. Make sure you are signed up to use the IRIS Registry and bookmark the Academy’s MIPS hub page.
