About Us

To contact us:

welshophthalmictrainees@gmail.com


We are Ophthalmology Specialist Trainees from the Wales Deanery School of Ophthalmology and this society serves to improve the medical education of ophthalmology via our website and organised events. We are a self-organised group and although not directly formed by the deanery, our members work with the official committees and use this platform to disseminate, validate, and confirm official training-related activities.

The rest of the members are made up of all the doctors training or working in ophthalmology in Wales. Students and allied healthcare professionals are strongly encouraged to participate in our online educational resources.

Our aims are to use this society to share resources, improve training, and expand on the quality of ophthalmology education for every level.

The public are more than welcomed to browse, although the medical information here is designed for clinicians and is not meant to be used as information for patients.
