Virtual observership programme

Moorfields Education is delighted to launch its Virtual Observership Programme. The COVID-19 pandemic imposed unprecedented challenges in the educational field of ophthalmology and we are pleased to be able to respond to these challenges by leveraging our expertise, to not only maintain our standard of education but also create alternative learning environments that are collaborative, inclusive and productive.

The prevalence of remote learning has been a very welcomed development within the medical education frontier and we remain committed to ensuring that no matter where you are in the world, you will not only get the latest thinking in ophthalmic practice and education but also have the opportunity to transform these insights into impact within your organisations and communities.

Programme Overview

Like our face-to-face Observership, the Virtual Observership programme will provide valuable explorations into the working processes and systems of Moorfields Eye Hospital and the NHS. The Programme will include self-paced content that has been curated by some of our world-renowned consultants allowing you to learn about various topics at your own pace in the comfort of your home.

Programme Structure

These programmes consist of self-paced materials that will include several video case studies with live webinars to conclude. The webinars will be repeated on different dates throughout the year as people complete the course. You will receive instructions on accessing the programme and joining the live webinar.
