ESASO Training Centre at Ospedale Italiano



lugano campus

Ospedale Italiano

On 28 October 2016, the new ESASO Training Centre (ETC) in Lugano was inaugurated as a state-of-the art innovative lab and a first-rate institution for advanced ophthalmologic education.

It has been a long journey from ESASO’s first thought in the year 2012 to the realization of the new training centre, which is conceived as the central home and main campus of its educational programme. The spacious ETC offers excellent equipment with plenty of opportunities for didactic training and hands-on education of ophthalmologists, where they can teach and learn from each other.

Since 2009 until September 2016 ESASO trained its participants at the university campus of the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI). While the two institutions share a long and strong partnership, the space and time available for ESASO are restricted due to the University’s own growth and needs. Thus ESASO’s constantly increasing demand thus fostered the need to build its own training facilities. As ESASO searched for ideal educational facilities, was decided to construct the Training Centre on the third floor of the Regional Hospital in Lugano (Ospedale Regionale Lugano, ORL; Ospedale Italiano).
