May 30, 2018 ICO Ophthalmic Educators Group on LinkedIn

As was previously announced, the ICO has formed a special interest group for ophthalmic educators, the ICO Ophthalmic Educators Group (ICO-OEG). The ICO-OEG supports educators and teachers of ophthalmology and recognizes ophthalmic education as a distinct subspecialty of ophthalmology.

As part of these efforts, the ICO has created an ICO-OEG LinkedIn group with the goal of creating a dynamic online space for ophthalmic educators to network, share resources, and discuss issues relevant to their profession. If you are an educator or involved in ophthalmic education, we are pleased to extend an invitation for you to join.

June 21, 2018 ICO Residency Curriculum in Spanish

The ICO Residency Curriculum has been translated into Spanish and is available for download on the ICO website.

The ICO Residency Curriculum offers an international consensus on what residents in ophthalmology should be taught. While the ICO Residency Curriculum provides a standardized content outline for ophthalmic training, it has been designed to be revised and modified, with the precise local details for implementation left to the region’s educators.

The ICO Residency Curriculum has been utilized in Austria, Cambodia, China, Colombia, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, South Africa, Tunisia, and other countries. It is endorsed by the European Board of Ophthalmology and the Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology.
