Over the years, the Balkan Ophthalmic Wetlab Course has become both a premier wetlab course and a highly anticipated ophthalmology event. This year, in order to handle the health and safety measures, the theoretical part will be held as a separate module remotely prior to the beginning of the course. The participants will have access to the lectures two weeks prior to the practical part. The biggest advantage is that you will have the convenience to get acquainted in detail with the theory from the comfort of your home and come to the wet lab with at least basic knowledge. During the wet lab itself, there will be a short discussion and introduction to each session and you will have the chance to discuss with the faculty the questions for each topic face to face.
The Practical part of the BOW will be held in Sofia and will be divided into two groups with only individual workstations with sufficient safety distance. The number of participants will be adapted to the size of the respective course rooms. The course area offers enough space to keep the necessary distance, sufficient hygiene items will be provided at several hygiene stations and at the individual work stations. All participants will pass a rapid antigen test before the start of the course, performed by medical representatives of the Resbiomed Eye Clinic.
The world of ophthalmology is an exciting area in which to work, and we will continue to meet and bring inspired people together in wetlabs like this, to ensure our Balkan Ophthalmic Wetlab Course remains at the cutting edge of knowledge. We are convinced that interaction with colleagues from many different countries will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas and will be personally rewarding.
We look forward to having you join our Anniversary edition!
