About

The Medicine (Ophtalmic Science) program at the University of Sydney develops core knowledge and understanding of basic ophthalmic science, which focuses on preventing blindness, promoting eye health, and rehabilitating those with a visual disability. You will develop knowledge of ophthalmic science alongside practical diagnostic and prognostic, management and surgical skills.

Overview

The Medicine (Ophtalmic Science) program at the University of Sydney is taught by the Save Sight Institute at the Sydney Eye Hospital. They have extensive experience in providing the best quality ophthalmic care in both developed and developing countries.

Covering the basic ophthalmic sciences, this course is delivered online and is complimented by an intensive face-to-face practical workshop, which offers flexibility for busy professionals. You will acquire a detailed theoretical understanding of ophthalmic anatomy, physiology and optics, skills in the practical applications of ophthalmic equipment, and familiarity with anatomical specimens, prosections, radiographs and electron micrographs.

Our Master of Medicine (Ophthalmic Science) is primarily for medical graduates who are interested in a career in related fields, although students may also come from allied health and science backgrounds. All graduates will be able to apply their knowledge and skills to their careers in medicine and the visual sciences and improve the eye health in their communities.

Career Pathways

The course aims to assist primarily medical graduates applying for a position in a RANZCO recognised training program. It also aims to assist all graduates who are interested in careers in the visual and neurosciences to have a good grounding in the ophthalmic and visual sciences. 

Students of this course will gain practical skills including the ability to understand the practical applications of ophthalmic equipment, familiarity with anatomical specimens, prosections, radiographs and electronmicrographs and the ability to apply psychometric testing to obtain reliable and repeatable data. Graduates will be able to apply these practical skills to their careers in the visual sciences and improve the eye health of our community.
