      Once a year, the Ophthalmology Department at the Royal Children's Hospital holds the Paediatric Ophthalmology Seminar. This seminar is designed for ophthalmology registrars in their 3rd year of training with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists. It is a three-day intensive short course that aims to provide participants with a combination of didactic teaching, problem solving, informal discussion as well as "hands-on experience" to enable them to approach paediatric ophthalmological problems confidently.

      The date for the seminar this year will be from  9am on  Friday 14th to approx. 4.30pm on Sunday 16th August 2020.    Registration will open in June 2020. A reminder email will be circulated via RANZCO and registration forms will be accessible on the RANZCO website once registration opens. Registration forms are not accessible via RCH directly.
