CBM in partnership with the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) organized a workshop of international ophthalmic educators and cataract subspecialists who developed this curriculum.
The phacoemulsification surgery-related learning objectives of the ICO Residency Curriculum were analyzed and evaluation methods defined for each. Teaching methods for each objective were elaborated upon, and the appropriate learning environments selected.
Curricula development has shifted from a task-oriented approach that is particular to each individual institution to a standardized, competency-based, education that takes into account the future needs of the public, adult learning principles, contemporary methods.
We invite residency programs to download, assess and send us feedback so we can keep improving this curriculum. Please send any questions or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
The American Academy of Ophthalmology has just launched a new app to help us keep updated on our medical knowledge.
Especially useful to test our present knowledge or to get new knowledge in small chunks. Ideal for when you have some short spare time as while standing in a line, waiting for the waiter to get to your table, or dead time at airports.
Very well built, performs very fast and allows for customization to get first what you are more interested in.
Con la gran explosión de las actividades de educación médica continua a través de Internet, algunos se preguntan si estamos llegando al fin de los congresos médicos presenciales.
Conozcan el pensamiento del Dr. Eduardo Viteri en esta breve e interesante presentación que realizó en Facoelche este año. Agradecemos al Dr. Soler el habernos compartido la grabación de la conferencia.
