February 25, 2018 Register for the 10th Eyexcel 16–20 July 2018

The ICO is pleased to announce its tenth year co-sponsoring the Eyexcel course along with the Lions Aravind Institute of Community Ophthalmology (LAICO) and the Seva Foundation. Eyexcel facilitates the creation or enhancement of ophthalmic training programs––ultimately increasing the availability of eye care.

This year’s Eyexcel course, “Expanding Global Eye Care Workforce through Excellence in Training,” will take place 16–20 July 2018 at the LAICO facility in Madurai, India.

The 2018 course will focus primarily on allied ophthalmic personnel training needs. Participants will define the skills their students require for eye health care responsibilities. The Eyexcel course will focus on producing specific teaching and assessment methods, program evaluation, and sustainability.

Many of the resources covered at Eyexcel are available in the ICO’s Center for Ophthalmic Educators under “What to Teach” for Allied Eye Care Personnel.

The course is open to teams from anywhere around the world. Course size is limited, and the deadline for registration is 5 July 2018. To learn more about Eyexcel, see the course description (page pending updates for 2018). For additional information contact Ms. Dhivya Ramasamy at: dhivya@aravind.org.
