The new Fellowship programme is now open
for applications for 2023!

This new project aims to provide candidates who fulfil the EGS requirements here, with high quality glaucoma training within UEMS member countries. This one-year programme is matching standards of theoretical and practical knowledge published on the EGS website (weblink). The final goal of this project is to harmonize glaucoma training across Europe while providing high-quality glaucoma care and building a solid basis for upcoming leaders in the field.
