About this course

Does the thought of having to see an “eye case” make you anxious? Do you fear you are not getting the most out of your ophthalmic exam? Are you confused
about what treatment is best for corneal ulcers?

This course is aimed at general practitioners who would like to broaden their ophthalmology knowledge and skills. By the end of the course, participants will have gained greater confidence dealing with eye cases.

This course is set at an intermediate level. However, if you are either a recent graduate or you have advanced ophthalmology knowledge and you are interested in participating, we encourage you to enrol. You will have at least one tutor at the other side of the computer to help personalise the learning experience and either fill some knowledge gaps or help you reach a higher knowledge plane

Why do this course?
This course will help improve your ophthalmology problem solving skills, provide you with tips on how to enhance your ophthalmic examination skills and build your knowledge about small animal ophthalmology.
