The European School for Advanced Studies in Ophthalmology established its headquarters in Lugano, where in 2016 it inaugurated the ESASO Training Centre, a new and innovative didactic centre. A second campus was founded in Singapore, where education is conceptualised and tailored for the Asian ophthalmologists. In 2021, the ESASO Foundation inaugurated a new campus in Lublin, a perfect location thanks to its geographical position and its academic and educational profile.

The ESASO Campus in Lublin is located within the Medical Simulation Centre, whose mission is to improve medical qualifications with the use of simulation training. Trainees are given the chance to perform realistic exercises using advanced equipment, which allow them to improve the learning stage and get considerable benefits for future medical operations. The Medical Simulation Centre is dedicated to the education of medical specialists and researchers. It allows to teach in fields of paediatrics, dentistry, nursing, obstetrics, physiotherapy, and emergency medicine. In the MSC you can find: Ambulance simulator, Intensive care rooms, Operating block, Objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE) and classes with simulated patients.

ESASO introduced ophthalmology courses to what the MSC offered, with a particular focus on cataract treatments. Each ESASO module offers theoretical and practical tuition, by combining theoretical lessons and wet lab. All lessons are highly interactive.

 The ESASO Board has nominated Prof Robert Rejdak as Scientific Director.



Leading ophthalmologists from around the world contribute to ESASO’s hands-on training programme, where theoretical lessons are coupled with practical experience on advanced surgical machines.
