Sydney Eye Hospital is a teaching hospital and has a continuing programme in place to teach qualifi ed doctors to become Eye Specialists. These Registrars benefi t in their training from the availability of already qualifi ed Eye Doctors who are engaged full time for the period of their Fellowship. Some of these Fellows are from third world countries and return to their country with their skills enhanced from their 12 months in this fully operational Eye Hospital.
