About

The International Ophtalmology program at the University of Sydney focuses on the specific training needs of clinicians in developing countries with a particular emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region. The course provides students with the skills to competently practise ophthalmology at the highest possible standard with an emphasis on the specific diseases and pathologies of their home countries.

Overview

The International Ophtalmology program at the University of Sydney gives students the opportunity to learn both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to enable them to competently diagnose and manage common eye conditions, diseases and injuries to the eye. Clinical and basic sciences are taught online and local and visiting mentors provide valuable teaching and supervision in the student's working environment.

As a Master of International Ophthalmology student, you will enter one of two streams: the Community Ophthalmology stream, for medical graduates with little or no ophthalmology specialist training from countries without specialised ophthalmology services, or the Vocational Ophthalmology stream, for students who have completed a specialised training program in their home country.

Career Pathways

Medical graduates in the Asia-Pacific region interested in ophthalmology will benefit from the Master of International Ophthalmology, which can lead to qualifications endorsed by their local health ministry. Successful graduates may be eligible for ophthalmology positions with an overseas health department.

International Ophthalmology graduates will gain practical skills that include knowledge of the prognosis and management of common eye conditions, diseases and injuries. The course also provides students with the opportunity to complete extensive practical experience, including performing ophthalmic surgery and management of post-operative complications.
