This programme is aimed at ophthalmologists with some previous experience and interested in acquiring specialized knowledge in Glaucoma.
The selected students will participate in both theoretical and practical aspects of daily practice. They will also have 90 practicums in the Wetlab included in the training programme (additional practicums will have a supplementary charge).
The evaluation of the student will be done on a continuous basis, by means of a rotation established with each of the specialists in the department. Attendance and participation in the drafting, review and/or monitoring of clinical guidelines are compulsory.
The registration fee is € 8,920. It must be paid by bank transfer.
