Download presentations from the World Ophthalmic Education Colloquium (WOEC) luncheon at the 2014 World Ophthalmology Congress® (WOC) in Tokyo. The presentations center around the luncheon theme, "Training Teams to Meet Public Needs of Eye Care."

Dr. Sarah Hean, of the Interprofessional Practice and Education School of Health & Social Care at Bournemouth University, presented the keynote talk on “The Future of Medical Education in Developed and Developing Countries: Team Training." 

Dr. Hean was asked to give her perspective as a medical educator outside of ophthalmology on what can be done to enhance all levels of ophthalmic training, to make education more effective, and how to better meet the needs for care through training ophthalmologists as leaders of eye care teams.

ICO Director for Education Karl Golnik described “Educational Strategies to Improve Access to Eye Care” and ICO Immediate Past President Bruce Spivey explored "Perspectives on the Future of Ophthalmic Education."

Since 2008, the WOEC series of symposia and workshops are held during the biannual WOC. The sessions cover essential topics in ophthalmic education and are designed for a diverse audience--from trained educators to practicing ophthalmologists who are interested in education.

The WOEC is open to all members of the ophthalmic community with the goal of helping ophthalmic educators and others enhance the training and continuing education of ophthalmologists and other eye care personnel.  The WOEC luncheon is open by invitation only.

The next WOEC will be held February 5-9 at the WOC2016 in Guadalajara, Mexico.
