Course content

The Ophthalmology MSc provides an in-depth engagement with the study of Ophthalmology in a contemporary clinical and research-focused context. It is intended to provide a comprehensive grounding in the principles, approaches and methodologies that inform current practice in the specific clinical sub-specialities in this rapidly advancing area.

The Ophthalmology MSc is delivered through a modular structure, in intensive learning blocks that are focused on the core ophthalmic sub-specialties in respect of content and topics (such as Glaucoma, Cornea and external disease, Neurophthamlology, Retinal conditions etc).

This allows for a connected synthesis of understanding to be developed across the programme, while ensuring that in depth knowledge of particular aetiologies, pathologies, management and treatment of conditions in specific areas can be acquired.

This programme aims to provide students with comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the field, and the specialist pathways emerging from it to permit informed choices in respect of further developing inpatient care and clinical research skills in ophthalmology.
