The European Board of Ophthalmology Residency Exchange Programme, Year 2013
The European Board of Ophthalmology aims to guarantee the highest standards of care in the field of ophthalmology in countries of the European Union by ensuring that the training of ophthalmologists is
raised to the highest possible level. As a practical effort towards that aim, EBO has an Exchange Programme
for residents, of European University Eye Clinics to visit EBO-approved teaching centres.
The programme for year 2013 is open to 40 residents only from the University teaching centres, upon approval and recommendation by the local Chair/University Administration, to visit one of the following EBO-certified institutions.
The period of exchange is one month for residents. The application form for 2013 grants can be obtained as of
October 2012. The chosen resident will receive from EBO an honorarium of 1000 euro, to compensate for travel expenses. He/she will be expected to cover any additional expenses or to negotiate them with their home chairperson. The Board requests a short written report of the exchange.
