ESCRS President Dr Paul Rosen says society will continue to grow

Significant investments in education and support for trainee doctors, joint meetings with sister ophthalmologic societies and the successful launch of the online European Registry of Quality Outcomes for Cataract and Refractive Surgery (EUREQUO) are all elements of ESCRS’s continuing commitment to meet the changing needs of surgeons and patients, ESCRS President Paul Rosen FRCS, FRCOpth, told delegates at the opening ceremony of the XXVII Congress in Barcelona.
To address the requirements of a changing membership base and establish clear policies on issues such as education and engagement with emerging and developing markets, the ESCRS Board last year led a review of the society’s structure and strategy.
“As a result of this exercise,” said Dr Rosen, “the new committees have this year begun working with new aims and goals which will, I hope, enable the ESCRS to continue to grow and to successfully meet the needs and expectations of its members. This includes significant investment in education, including e-learning opportunities and support for trainee doctors, especially from emerging European markets,” he said.
