About this course

International Ophthalmology focuses on the specific training needs of clinicians in developing countries with a particular emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region. The course provides students with the skills to competently practise ophthalmology at the highest possible standard with an emphasis on the specific diseases and pathologies of their home countries.

The course gives students the opportunity to learn both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to enable them to competently diagnose and manage common eye conditions, diseases and injuries to the eye. Clinical and basic sciences are taught online and local and visiting mentors provide valuable teaching and supervision in the student's working environment.

As a Master of International Ophthalmology student, you will enter one of two streams: the Community Ophthalmology stream, for medical graduates with little or no ophthalmology specialist training from countries without specialised ophthalmology services, or the Vocational Ophthalmology stream, for students who have completed a specialised training program in their home country.
