University of Sydney cataract and refractive surgery program invites applications

The program’s graduate diploma and masters degrees, both internationally recognised for their high standards of refractive surgical teaching, now offers improved flexibility and affordability which means that students:
* Gain experience and expertise in the latest corneal and intraocular techniques, including ftosecond lens surgery, via workshop and clinical teaching formats;
* Can apply for recognition of prior learning for ‘Ophthalmic Anatomy and Ophthalmic Optics’, reducing the cost of the programme by up to 50 per cent; and
* Can choose to undertake clinical experience locally (through auditing and mentoring) or by completing intensive two-weeks program in Sydney at the end of the year. That provides an opportunity to complete the entire degree rotely.
The ‘Cataract and Refractive’ program was established and continues to be led by director Professor Gerard Sutton, with other key contributors including: Drs Michael Lawless, John Males and Colin Chan, lecturers and unit coordinators; and Drs Nicholas Karunaratne and Ravinder Singh, tutors.
