AAO 'ONE Network' - ICO Member Access 

The ICO would like to remind members of the resources available to you through the AAO’s ONE Network, which now has over 15,000 pages of content, including 1,700 videos and 3,500 downloadable images  The Academy want to ensure that members of the ONE Network are getting the most out of the resource and have therefore created a number of tools and communication resources that can assist you in accessing the network.

The recent updates mean that when members log on to use the ONE Network, they will be able to access a greater extent of new content, such as a library of 3,500 free clinical images, basic skills courses, master class videos and self-assessments.

The upgraded facility will also find content easily and quickly using a powerful new search engine and customise a visitors learning experience with the "My ONE Network" tool. The new version also allows members to view clinical content on any mobile device.

All ICO members, including trainees, have access to the ONE Network resource by way of being a member of the College. The ICO strives to keep our members connected to the AAO and provide updates on their on-going activities. The advantages of this close alignment of our organisations is of great mutual benefit.

ICO members have personal login details but if you have any queries or have forgotten your username or password or need instructions on logging in to the ONE Network you can contact the ICO directly or email oneintl@aao.org.

New - Add Your Listing to the ONE Network Global Directory of Training Opportunities

At AAO 2016 in Chicago, a new directory called the Global Directory of Training Opportunities was launched. It serves as a clearinghouse for what the AAO hope will be all ophthalmic training opportunities open to ophthalmologists outside of the United States.  The directory was created in response to requests received from young ophthalmologists seeking information about observership and fellowship opportunities.

You can search the directory by subspecialty and region of the world. Each listing includes contact information, should you want to pursue a training opportunity and a space for public comments.

We also encourage you to list a training opportunity if your institution or practice wishes to be included in this comprehensive directory.
