The University of Edinburgh is awarding scholarships in their online Master of Surgery (ChM) in Clinical Ophthalmology program, thanks to the generous support of The David and Molly Pyott Foundation.
The ChM is designed to support ophthalmology trainees in the United Kingdom and internationally by providing advanced training for those preparing for the fellowship examinations of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) and those approaching consultancy.
The part-time, online, distance-learning 2-year program is jointly offered by the University of Edinburgh and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, and was developed in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland (NES). Further course information is available online, along with an introductory video by Professor Baljean Dhillon, professor of clinical ophthalmology at the University of Edinburgh.
Doctors from Africa, Central and South Asia, Caribbean Islands, Pacific Islands, Central and Latin America who are accepted for admission to the 2020–2021 ChM program are eligible for the scholarship award, which will cover all tuition fees as well as internet access and a laptop. Applications close on June 1, 2020. Applicants should be advanced trainees/residents/registrars in ophthalmology. Applications from ophthalmologists in independent practice may also be considered.
