As a member of the Irish College of Ophthalmologists, you have free access to the Academy's Ophthalmic News & Education (ONE®) Network. The ONE Network is a comprehensive, online educational resource that brings together the most clinically relevant content, news and tools from a variety of trusted sources.

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.

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.

Recently updated for AAO 2016, the GO Guide features: image libraries, reference charts, tables and algorithms for dozens of topics; tips on travel safety and how to get started volunteering; online CME courses; and international surgical videos.
