December 11, 2017 ICO 360° Assessment Tool

The article, “The International Council of Ophthalmology 360-Degree Assessment Tool: Development and Validation,” has been published in the Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology.

The ICO 360° Assessment Tool is a multi-source feedback tool to assess and provide feedback to residents regarding their competence in “soft skills” such as interpersonal and communication skills and professionalism, as seen by different groups of people with whom the resident interacts (faculty, peer, allied ophthalmic personnel, and patients). This assessment was developed specifically for ophthalmology residents by the ICO Education team, and has been validated by a panel of international experts.

January 22, 2018 International Residents Benefit from Collaboration

To support ophthalmic learning worldwide, the University of Utah’s John A. Moran Eye Center and the ICO have formed a new partnership.

Moran’s global teaching portal––Clinical Ophthalmology Resource for Education (CORE) International––now closely maps the ICO Residency Curriculum offering residents, no matter their country, access to lectures related to specific curriculum goals for every year of their ophthalmology residency. CORE and the ICO are also accumulating other lectures, videos, and resources to further support the education of residents.

CORE is a collection of ophthalmic education resources and is intended to be a boundary-free, permanent learning and reference tool, at no cost to the user.
