Online learning, has become increasingly popular for medical education of adult learners. It is cost effective, accessible and flexible in terms of time and place. GERSO will deliver synchronous online learning and asynchronous learning as the educational material will be available from the GERSO website. In addition our aim is to have all content that is presented in English to be translated into Spanish and Mandarin to make content more accessible around the world.
GERSO is a new initiative to teach at all levels not just the experienced and advanced ophthalmologists. The vision is to 1) Provide the didactic part of an ophthalmic residency program remotely so that everyone around the world can have access to the highest level of education possible from world leaders 2) Provide intermediate level education for senior trainees and newly qualified ophthalmologists to up skill them so that they are able to deal with transitions in both their careers and the complexity of the cases that they deal with 3) A platform for the more experienced to share their knowledge and to discuss complex cases with a wide audience.
