Sub- specialty Clinical Fellowship Curriculum validation meeting held on the 1st November, 2019 at Ramada Hotel in Dar es Salaam.
The main objective of this meeting was to Validate the draft curriculum developed for the sub speciality clinical fellowship and discuss the progress made regarding the ongoing development of three subspecialty curriculums, namely Glaucoma, Vitreo-Retina and Paediatrics & Strabismus.During this meeting the review of various accompanying tools including accreditation and training evaluation guidelines/forms, was discussed as part of the consolidation process in readiness for submission to the senate for approval.
This activity is part of COECSA’s plans to roll out regional Clinical Fellowship Programmes with support from the Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium (CEHC). The programme will provide a well-defined clinical experience in Vitreo-Retina, Paediatric & Strabismus and Glaucoma Surgery specialty with recognised expertise. With this programme, it is our hope to forestall the challenge of long periods of training abroad and maximize on the available pool of resources, both human resources and centres.
