Postgraduate Training Programme

Postgraduate School of Ophthalmology Calendar

This Calendar shows upcoming training and social events occurring on behalf of the Postgraduate School of Ophthalmology. It may be viewed in a monthly format (default) but week or list views are also available. It is possible to sort the calendar entries according to category (training event, academic, social etc). The calendar allows registered users to enroll onto a session.

 

Postgraduate Training Programme

The 2016 - 2017 postgraduate programme can be downloaded here. Please note that there will be changes to this programme during the year, so check the Calendar for the most up-to-date information.

Six sessions have been allocated to the MOS as part of the Fixed Study Leave for trainees and allowing Local Trusts to reallocate trainees to clinical duties during 'off sessions'. The BMEC Alumni/Roper Hall Medal is a whole day session with the Roper-Hall scheduled for the afternoon and is part of your fixed study leave. If you wish to attend the Alumni meeting in the morning, you will need to apply for half-day study leave for the morning session. The provisional programme will be available shortly.

70% attendance rate is mandatory to ensure a successful ARCP. As of 2015 ARCPs, a certificate of attendance will be provided by the school to confirm attendance rates for trainees, with and without feedback. Feedback and learning is part of CPD and revalidation.

Quality assurance is vital for postgraduate activity. The school feedback form is 'revalidation' ready and is based upon the form recommended by the Professional Standards Committee from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.  An electronic web-based version of the form has been developed and will be circulated weekly for completion. A maximum of  5 days after the event (i.e. 8AM Monday after the attendance) is required for feedback submission. Any late returns will be marked as non-attended. Attendees should also consider uploading reflective learning to the e-portfolio for any sessions they specifically thought were useful.  

For further information on all of the above, please go to Postgraduate Training Programme News.

CPD points

Trainers and Consultants are encouraged to attend and participate, particularly those afternoons relevant to their subspecialty interests. This will improve the learning experience. For symposia and grand rounds, regional category A continual professional development points from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists can be approved by Miss Rauz (West Midlands CPD Coordinator). If Consultant Leads for each session are interested in  having their session CPD approved, please contact Miss Rauz.

Academic Unit of Ophthalmology Seminars

The Academic Unit of Ophthalmology runs research seminars every 4th Thursday of the month (08:00-09:00) for Academic clinical and non-clinical staff. All trainees and trainers are also welcome and encouraged to attend. These seminars are particularly suitable for anyone wishing to undertake research with the Unit and comprise a mixture of clinical and basic science topics. The seminars  attract 1 Category A CPD point from the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.
