Welcome to the website of the Edinburgh FOCUS Foundation Ophthalmology Course.

This course was first held in January 2007 in Edinburgh, UK. It is designed to teach the basic practical skills essential for doctors starting a first job in ophthalmology, or for those wanting to learn basic ophthalmological examination skills.


The next FOCUS course will be in 2017.

Please contact us if you want to be informed when the next course dates are confirmed

The FOCUS course is a hands-on practical course, with patients with real pathology to examine and focused small group activities, to ensure every delegate gains the maximal opportunity and experience. This has made it an extremely popular course, which sells out every time.

2016 was the eleventh FOCUS course, and it has now become an essential course for aspiring ophthalmologists in the UK.
