Online Programs in Eye Banking

The Graduate Certificate in Eye Banking and the nested Specialist Certificate in the Fundamentals of Eye Banking are the first to be endorsed and accredited by the Eye Bank Association of Australia and New Zealand (EBAANZ). The Specialist Certificate in the Fundamentals of Eye Banking (on line) course is a graduate course qualification normally taking 6 months of part-time study that will equip graduates to work within the specialist field of eye banking. The course has been designed to support existing eye bankers, those new to the sector and those working in peer and relevant sectors who wish to gain additional knowledge about eye banking in order to support their own area of specialization. Professionals involved in other transplant sectors, ophthalmology and global eye care development fields are also welcome to enroll in this course in order to gain a wider understanding of eye banking. Students who complete this course may continue to the Graduate Certificate in Eye Banking.

The Graduate Certificate is a structured course covering all aspects of eye banking. It is anticipated that most participants will complete the course within one year of part-time study. The course is delivered on-line and consists of 3 core subjects: Fundamentals in Eye Banking, Eye Donation for Transplantation and Principles of Eye Bank Practice.
