Optics is a science and like all sciences there are some elements that are best learned practically. Practical blocks consist of seminars where the candidates are able to engage directly with the techniques and skills required for modern Ophthalmic practice. Each day is divided into seminars that reinforce technical and theoretical elements of the modules. Mentees are also able to engage directly in group discussion that develops their understanding of the material in the context of their own experience. These seminars are predominantly conducted in Sydney but may be delivered at other locations by prior arrangement should the minimum number of mentees be ten.
