About

This Clinical Ophthalmic Practice programme from University College London (UCL) will allow students to develop advanced knowledge of the eye, eye diseases and treatment and the research underpinning clinical practice.

Overview

It is delivered by ophthalmologists, researchers and nurses who are at the forefront of ophthalmic research clinical practice at the Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Hospital Trust – both institutions will be involved in the teaching.

By the end of your Clinical Ophthalmic Practice programme from University College London (UCL) you should have acquired advanced knowledge about common eye disease and some specialities and be more confident in your clinical practice underpinned by a knowledge of the relevant current ophthalmic research. 

You will also acquire skills in academic writing, problem based learning and group work, independent research and analytical skills.

Teaching and learning

The course has been designed with the working professional in mind, so you can study when it is convenient as 75% of the course is delivered online with the remaining 25% of the course being delivered face-to-face.

In a typical week, you will be expected to engage in online learning and participate in the group activities, develop clinical skills, carry out personal reading and research, which accounts to approximately 12-40 hours a week, depending on your mode of attendance.
