Postgraduate teaching

The ChM Clinical Ophthalmology has been designed to support, supplement and advance clinical learning, develop clinical research skills and provide a platform from which ophthalmologists in training are mentored during this 2 year distance learning postgraduate programme. 

The format of our ChM course delivery incorporates a multimedia mix of teaching tools including asynchronous discussion boards, video lectures, virtual clinics and e-portfolio reflective diaries. The international teaching Faculty has the experience and expertise to deliver clinically-relevant content across the range of medical and surgical ophthalmology to a global studentship.

The Faculty are mindful of the varied culture, climate and geographic contexts in which students practice ophthalmology and the limitations in resources available in less affluent settings. This has shaped the way in which didactic and discursive topics are prioritised and practiced within the virtual learning environment and is one of the unique features of the ChM Clinical Ophthalmology.
