Residents interested in learning more about ophthalmology should check out the Virtual Introductory Summer Course in Ophthalmology (VISCO), which is a free virtual course on Sunday afternoons this summer that aims to provide increased accessibility to high quality ophthalmology teaching. The first session on Sunday June 19, 2022 3-5pm ET is case-based and focuses on common emergency presentations which your residents may encounter in clinical practice. 

The course is composed of two parts:

  1. Six weekly workshops presented by ophthalmology faculty and residents across Canada, and
  2. A high-yield structured reading guide using curated resources that is meant to provide background knowledge to supplement the workshops.

During the course, you will have opportunities to win prizes and learn ophthalmology from incredible teachers.

The content and objectives of this course are based on a curated list of learning objectives endorsed by Canadian Undergraduate Medical Education Leads in Ophthalmology and reference resources from the Association of University Professors in Ophthalmology (AUPO) and the Medical Council of Canada (MCC).  

These sessions are also eligible for Royal College Section 2 CME credits.
