Customised Training Courses

Customised Training Courses

ESASO offers companies the possibility to train their managers or employees in the field of ophthalmology, by organising customised courses on the basis of participants’ specific needs and objectives. There are two options:

• Basic ophthalmology courses addressing companies’ managers

• Specific courses addressing both full ophthalmologists and residents; free choice of topics.

Indeed, ESASO can offer companies different kinds of courses, combining theory classes, wetlab sessions and dry-lab sessions to practice with the simulators.

Courses can be 1 to 3-day long and they are always run by the internationally renowned ESASO faculty; scientific quality of the contents is thus always very high and they can cover all ophthalmology’s subspecialties.
