Please see email below

Please email Vanna for the application form for anyone interested


Dear Head of School/TPDs/Regional Advisers/College Tutors


I wish to bring to your attention the part-time fixed term role advertised on the College website for a Curriculum Resource Development Fellow.


The Curriculum Sub-committee has recently reformatted the OST Curriculum and the aim now is to create a comprehensive and up-to-date resource library, which will include teaching tools for delivery.


We are seeking an enthusiastic Specialty Registrar (ST5 and above) or equivalent to map the OST curriculum to existing resources and identify areas where new resources are required. This is a unique opportunity to learn about curriculum delivery and the development of teaching resources and to develop leadership skills working with experts in the relevant fields.

Here's the presentation from Sam Evans. Great summary of the diagnosis and management of lacrimal disease.

What do we know about concussion and visual loss? Tina Parmar summarises this condition for us. Interestingly, we don't see it that often as these patients are often treated by their primary physician. However, we need to be aware of the pathophysiology as it will help us with our differentials.

Teaching 1/4/16

James Tribble has kindly summarised his presentation on the 1st of April 2016 as below. We thank him for his participation! The School Of Optometry and Vision Sciences is a successful unit with plenty of research that is very relevant to us as ophthalmologists. (and they are just down the road from the eye unit in Cardiff!)

Key Points from OTG Meeting MARCH 2016

Eportfolio Houskeeping

Prior to the changeover of eportfolio suppliers in August, registrars are reminded to ensure that all material on their eportfolio has been finalised i.e. not under review.


ARCP outcome records in the current e-portfolio system are closed manually by College staff.  Existing records still showing as ‘Under review’ may only be closed on receipt of the signed copy of the ARCP Outcome form.  The system has no functionality which automatically alerts the College that forms have been uploaded in the resource section of the e-portfolio.

In preparation for the migration to the new system, all registrars are strongly recommended to contact LETBs/Deaneries directly to retrieve their missing ARCP outcome forms.  Outstanding forms must be emailed to

The absolute deadline is 7th July after which historical data will become ‘read only’ as data is migrated



ESR and CSR forms will be electronically incorporated into the new eportfolio from August 2016.
