Microsurgical skills

Develop your skills in periocular, cornea and cataract surgery

This practical course is suitable for medical residents and ophthalmic registrars interested in developing their surgical skills.

The University of Sydney is offering a short course in microsurgical skills for ophthalmology. The course is suited to junior doctors considering a career in ophthalmology, non-training or pre-vocational eye registrars, and first-year vocational training registrars. This course will provide you with the foundational skills necessary to advance your surgical skills in periocular, skin and cataract surgery.

Ten hours of online lectures are followed by a three day intensive practical at the Sight for Life Laboratory on the Sydney Hospital campus. A team of consultants, senior registrars and fellows from Australia, New Zealand and the UK supervise the wet labs and workshops with a staff to student ratio of 3:1.
