The Young Ophthalmologists Programme (YOP) was established in response to feedback from UKISCRS members.

YOP aims to target and represent the needs of ophthalmic specialty trainees and consultant ophthalmic surgeons in their first three years of clinical practice.

YOP run their own programme, parallel to the main symposium, at the UKISCRS annual congress. The YOP day highlights topical scientific needs and provides a chance for you to listen to and interact with UK & Internationally renowed ophthalmologists.
