Nana Nikolaishvili, Georgia, Educational Grant Observership Report from Vissum Clinic, Alicante, Spain

It is a great pleasure for me to share my impressions about my stay at Vissum Clinic, Alicante . I am very happy that I had the chance to participate in European Society of Ophthalmology Grant program. It is very nice that organizations like SOE supports young ophthalmologists to enlarge their knowledge and to develop their new skills. As a participant in this program I would like to emphasize that I really learned a lot about clinical practice, work organization and science.

I could see all the activities with regard to the diagnostics, treatment planning, surgery, laser procedures and of course the educational process and work with Research department.

The environment in the clinic was great. The working conditions allow the specialists to give their best for the patients in low stress atmosphere. The equipment was  super modern and was a reason for perfect diagnostic and surgical procedures.

I was pleasantly surprised that in this clinic great attention was paid to the continuing education of young ophthalmologists. The morning presentations were the true evidence how everybody could learn more every day. During my stay I visited well organized meetings at the clinic.

I found  my stay at Vissum Research department very helpful for my PhD work.

I would like to thanks everybody, who organized and realized this grant programme that helps us all, ophthalmologists from developing countries, enjoy and discover new opportunities in ophthalmology.

 Thank you!
