Ophthalmic Research Symposium 2013

12th October 2013

Laird Hall, Queen Mary University

 

Whether you decide to undertake research or not in the future the greater understanding of research and how to evaluate it will prove an invaluable tool in your future evidence-based clinical practice.

The Research symposium has been created after much deliberation to allow trainees and students to understand the world of research and how it fits into the NHS and the World of Ophthalmology.

The course is the first of its kind and has been welcomed by consultants, students and trainees alike.  

For those interested in an introduction to academic ophthalmology, it offers advice on the pathways available and the ethical aspects all should consider in what can be a grey area and how to reduce the occurrence of pitfalls.

By the end of the symposium, as well as being able to speak to those involved in high volume research, attendees will have a greater understanding of the principles of research and appreciation of its value.
