Our Ophthalmology Unit runs an intensive two-week residential course in Dunedin each November. This course is for New Zealand and Australian medical graduates in their second year of the RANZCO training programme, and is designed to help them prepare for the Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologist (FRANZCO).
This is a two-day educational meeting for some of the top teachers in our Department to share new knowledge on ten topics in Medicine. It is designed as a fun, interactive course and a good way to keep up-to-date in a collegial atmosphere.
