Want more exposure to Ophthalmology? Are you that keen pupil who just wants an eye-ful of spectacle-ar real-life cases? Tired of the lame cornea jokes? (We'll stop now, promise.)

Introduction to Ophthalmology aims to give YOU a glimpse of what it is like to be an ophthalmologist, discuss common ophthalmological cases, and delineate ways to enter the profession!

Our speaker is Dr. Matthew Ball, an ophthalmic surgeon with additional sub-specialist qualifications in cornea and anterior segment surgery. He graduated from the University of Adelaide, followed by a Masters in International Public Health at the University of Sydney before commencing ophthalmology training at Sydney Eye Hospital. During his training at the Sydney Eye hospital, he was recognised for excellence by being awarded both the Churchill Fellowship and the Norman Rose Travelling Scholarship. Following this, he completed further Fellowship qualifications in the UK, in corneal surgery at Bristol Eye Hospital, and anterior segment surgery at the prestigious Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. He also participated in developing world programs such as the Myanmar Eye Care Programme, and was a Senior Medical Office for Medecins Sans Frontieres in Ethiopia. Dr. Matt Ball is currently a consultant at Sydney Eye and St George Hospital and was awarded the Best Consultant Teacher 2013 for UNSW St George and Sutherland Clinician Schools and Consultant of the Year Sydney Eye Hospital 2013.

There are some great network opportunities involved. And oh, did we tell you that there will be refreshments!

Don't miss out on one of the most exciting events of the year!
