Ophthalmology Webinar Network

The Ophthalmology Webinar Network shares live and archived lectures from residency programs around the world. Coordinated by the ICO's Director for E-Learning, Eduardo Mayorga, the intent of the Ophthalmology Webinar Network is to maximize existing resources from residency programs and expand educators' access to them.

If you belong to an institution that runs webinars, please let us know if you would like to list them in the Network.

 Similarly, if you train residents and would like to share your lectures in the Network, please also contact us at educators@icoph.org if you have comments, questions, or need assistance.
