Division of Ophthalmology

Undergraduate Training

Undergraduate training consists of academic lectures on general ophthalmology in the third year of the MBChB program with subsequent assessment by written examination. During their student internship in their final years of the MBChB program students rotate in the division for 3 weeks. During this clinical rotation they are expected, with the guidance of part-time consultants and the registrars, to master an array of clinical skills in ophthalmology. They are continuously assessed by the consultants and registrars and must successfully complete a final clinical slide test and written exam.
