The Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology (TI0) in Kathmandu is globally renowned as an education and training facility.
TIO’s education and training department is dedicated to the ongoing development of all levels of eye health. TIO believes that continuous medical education maintains improvements in patient health care by supporting medical education programs that inform ophthalmologists of the most current and advanced levels of medical knowledge.
Since TIO established its education and training program, doctors and students have flown in not just from neighboring Asian countries, but also from Africa, Australia, the United States and Europe.
Trainees come from all over the world to avail themselves of the high quality facilities and Tilganga’s unsurpassed academic record.
This enhances an ophthalmologist’s expertise and competence to deliver the highest possible level of medical care to patients.
Periodically, expert international professionals are invited for workshops in different specialties. Ophthalmologists, not only from TIO, but from other eye hospitals throughout Nepal are invited to attend.
The department runs three types of programs, including academic, modular and exposure training.
