Eyeducation, Eyeducation.co.uk and EyeducationUK
Eyeducation was launched in April 2020 in response to the appetite for online video linked education during the COVID19 pandemic via Eyeducation.co.uk by EyeducationUK. We offer bi-weekly 30 minute teaching sessions delivered by high quality speakers from around the UK. EyeducationUK sessions aimed to fill the void of postgraduate teaching, allowing all UK Ophthalmology trainees free access to up-to-date and evidence based practical ophthalmology teaching. Read more about our experience of delivering this nationalised live video-linked series here. We are currently advertising webinars/online events delivered by other institutions in the UK accessed via our website. Do check out our events page for more details of the programme and other related events.
