MSc Primary Care Ophthalmology

Part-time distance learning

NES Optometry has been working in partnership with The University of Edinburgh's College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine (CMVM) and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) to develop two new postgraduate programmes in clinical ophthalmology by part-time, online distance learning which launched in September 2014.

The MSc in Primary Care Ophthalmology is aimed at optometrists, ophthalmology trainees entering specialty training, GPs, other medics and other eye care professionals. This course is also relevant to orthoptists, ophthalmic nurses and dispensing opticians seeking to advance their understanding of clinical ophthalmology. A limited number of NES Optometry bursaries of up to 50% of fees may be available to optometrists practising in Scotland.
