This seven–week course is intended to provide contemporary and extensive coverage of the basic sciences and clinical sciences in Ophthalmology. Founded in 1946, the Lancaster Course has provided training for ophthalmologists from all over the world; many teaching hospitals supplement their residency training programs with the Lancaster Course. The faculty is selected for its expertise, clarity of presentation and ability to provide high-quality visual aids.

An expansive syllabus is provided and feedback from the previous year’s participants is closely evaluated and reflected in both faculty and syllabus changes. Both residents and practicing ophthalmologists who wish to focus on certain topics in ophthalmology are welcome to register for individual sections. The course is held at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, during the summer months. This has proved to be a congenial atmosphere for faculty, students, and staff. Registrants also benefit from the networking and friendships made with faculty members and classmates during the summer program. The Lancaster Course is truly an exceptional experience that encompasses much more than the exposure to didactic teaching.
