Welsh Ophthalmic Trainees Society - call out for committee members

We are keen to replenish the committee of this society. 

Over the last 2 years, the society has been a key player in ophthalmic training and education in Wales.  

We are unique in that we are completely a trainee-led society and have been instrumental as a portal for all ophthalmic training in this region. 

There have been events organised that have successfully promoted education and training in ophthalmology, with our largest event now a popular course for national and international doctors doing the FRCOPHTH part 2 examination.

We also raised money for Sightsavers last year (more than £1500!) - a charity that helps the visually impaired in developing countries. We work closely with WORC, the Welsh Ophthalmic Research Collaborative -  the first trainee research network in Wales.

We have also produced some exciting online material that you can check out at youtube!

For the first time in a generation, we now have a Wales Eye Ball, which no doubt will foster great personal and working relationships amongst staff in all eye units in Wales. 

If you are a junior doctor/medical student/allied health professional working in Wales and are interested in helping us build the society to carry on its good work for the future, please contact Amy at welshophthalmictrainees@gmail.com. Organising these beneficial events is a great opportunity to build up the management, leadership, and teaching aspects of your personal development.
