Ophthalmology Foundation Educational Resources

The Ophthalmology Foundation has created and compiled several resources that are free for Ophthalmologists to access as needed. Below, you can find our collection of internationally standardized and published Direct Observation of Clinical Skills (iDOCS) and Subspecialty Surgical Rubrics (OSCARS), for use by ophthalmology teachers and trainers to use to improve their trainees’ technique. Residents and other trainees can also use these to expand their knowledge and improve their technique.

We have also compiled a library of useful ophthalmology teaching resources from across the globe, which can be accessed for free at our online campus.
