Welcome from the Director of Education

Thank you for your interest in our education and training programmes.


Through our cutting-edge short courses and programmes, we ensure that you not only get the latest thinking in ophthalmic practice and education but can transform these insights into impact in your organisation. Participants consistently rate our courses as outstanding and delegates value being trained and taught by world-renowned faculty, scientists, consultants and clinicians.

UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (IoO) and Moorfields Eye Hospital (MEH) are world leaders in vision and eye health research. As partners, we are a defining force in research that makes a difference to the world. Through our courses, we take the knowledge we create through our research and translate it into education and training for professionals who are natural creators and problem solvers.

Our ambition is to empower you to explore, engage and define the vision and eye health sector. We provide a range of courses that give you the skills and training you need to progress in your career. It’s the people we train and educate that will lead the discovery and inquiry going forward and make a difference in terms of addressing the health challenges around vision.

Through our approach to education – combining the scientific expertise of the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology with Moorfields Eye Hospital’s real work environment – all our participants, regardless of what stage of their learning journey they are at, will acquire the skills and knowledge that will set them apart in all their future endeavours. Our commitment to education is for life, and our courses and curriculum are designed for everyone, everywhere and at any stage in their career.
