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 October 20th-21st 2017.
Applications for the 2017 course are now open – click on the Apply tab above.
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 maximum 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.
