The Master of Medicine (Ophthalmic Science) develops core knowledge and understanding of basic ophthalmic science, which focuses on preventing blindness, promoting eye health, and rehabilitating those with a visual disability. You will develop knowledge of ophthalmic science alongside practical diagnostic and prognostic, management and surgical skills.
Our ophthalmology programs have been developed and are taught by the Save Sight Institute at the Sydney Eye Hospital. They have extensive experience in providing the best quality ophthalmic care in both developed and developing countries.
Covering the basic ophthalmic sciences, this course is delivered online and is complimented by intensive face-to-face practical workshops, which offer flexibility for busy professionals. You will acquire a detailed theoretical understanding of ophthalmic anatomy, physiology and optics, skills in the practical applications of ophthalmic equipment, and familiarity with anatomical specimens, prosections, radiographs and electron micrographs.
Our Master of Medicine (Ophthalmic Science) is primarily for medical graduates who are interested in a career in related fields, although students may also come from allied health and science backgrounds. This course is principally aimed at those who wish to apply for a position in a Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) recognised training program. Graduates will be able to apply their practical skills to their careers in the visual sciences and improve the eye health in their communities.
