Advertising educational and training resources, awards, seminars/courses and events

The aims of The Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) are to advance the science and practice of ophthalmology which we do by supporting excellence in the training and continuing professional development of ophthalmologists.

The RCOphth collaborates with a wide range of organisations to deliver services, events and information which influences national eye health policy and benefits patients and the profession of ophthalmology.

We recognise that there are high quality external educational resources, awards, seminars/courses and events that may benefit our members and affiliates and wish to share these on appropriate RCOphth communication and publication channels. These are primarily College News the membership quarterly magazine, eye-mail the enewsletter and the website, rcophth.ac.uk.

Advertising Educational and Training resources (such as papers and electronic resources, but not limited to these)
We use the following criteria to assess suitability of resource materials on and offline:

  • There is likely to be an educational or professional development benefit to members or affiliates
  • Publication must have no conflict of interest, or perceived conflict of interest, with the values, aims and role of the RCOphth
  • No inappropriate personal information is present and publishing would not breach data protection laws
  • The information is in a format we can publish, such as PDF document or web link
  • Satisfactory permission to publish has been given by the creator, author or copyright holder

All educational resources submitted for publication will be considered by the Vice President, Policy & Communications and in consultation with any other relevant individuals, committee chairs and departments. We undertake to respond within 20 working days of receipt of the request to communications@rcophth.ac.uk. There is no guarantee that a request will be approved for publication.
