Annual Congress Sponsorship Scheme

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists Scientific Committee and International Committee are offering a limited number of complementary admissions to the Annual Congress to colleagues from developing countries.

The ophthalmologist (a senior trainee or consultant) will be offered free registration to the entire Congress. This will be supported by a local ‘sponsor’ (RCOphth member) who will apply for the scheme on behalf of the delegate. The ‘sponsor’ must also attend Congress and host the visitor. The successful candidate must submit a short report on the visit and its value to their base hospital.

Applications will be considered by the Chairman of the Scientific Committee with support from two other Committee members electronically. Places will be considered on a first come first serve basis.

If you would like to apply for a place please email [email protected]

When emailing an application please provide details of the international delegate and why you are requesting sponsorship for them. If the application is successful the sponsor will need to confirm their attendance at the Congress.
