Ophthalmology is a great speciality that combines surgery and medicine as well as providing you with a great opportunity to travel and volunteer for charities such as Unite for Sight.
We plan to host presentations by several junior and consultant ophthalmologists on career pathways in ophthalmology, operating in developing countries and neuro-ophthalmology. We also hope to help preclinical students to organise ophthalmology SSCs especially those planning to volunteer during the summer, as well as organising extra teaching by doctors from the London Vision Clinic.
We plan to attend a practical skills teaching session for undergraduates interested in Ophthalmology as well as organising our own practical skills sessions for students at Barts. In addition we want to get you involved in research in ophthalmology to enhance your CVs and passion in the subject!
Whether you are interested in ophthalmology, global health or simply doing something different and would like to be involved in developing a new society at Barts please get in touch!
