Description: This 2-day course is designed to serve as an introduction to phacoemulsification cataract surgery for ST1 and LAT trainees who have completed the EyeSi courseware A and B training. The focus will be on hands-on practical experience with only short introductions to each topic followed by practice on a variety of model eyes. We guarantee that each trainee will have the opportunity to complete at least 10 phacoemulsification procedures over the 2 days. The course is only open to doctors who have been appointed to a ST1 post in 2019, but who are not starting until February 2020. A limited number of places will also be open to overseas trainees.
