The FRCRnet network offers technical and scientific training, accessible to its members free of charge.
This training can also be offered to external participants. Please contact us for more information.
Proposed training courses:
- Targeted laser training
- Adaptive optics imaging: technique and interpretation
- Seminar on adaptive optics imaging of the retina
- GCP training, accessible only to network members
Targeted laser photocoagulation for macular oedema: a practical course
Purpose of the training: Master the technique of laser photocoagulation for macular oedema, particularly for investigators in the TaLaDME study. Trainng is done on each investigation site.
Profile: Retina specialists
Organisation of the training: ½ day theory + ½ day practice on site. Each session involves one to three ophthalmologists.

Adaptive optics imaging: one day course with the rtx1 camera
Purpose: To understand the main operating principles of AO imaging with the rtx1 camera, in order to become autonomous in its use, learn how to interpret images acquired in normal subjects and in those suffering from diseases affecting the retina.
Profile: Ophthalmologists, orthoptists, other medical disciplines (cardiologists, neurologists, etc.), physicists and engineers interested in using the rtx1 camera.
Agenda :3 hours of theory and 3 hours of practice.

Seminar on adaptive optics ophthalmoscopy for the retina
Purpose of the training: Understand the main operating principles of AO, learn how to interpret images acquired in normal subjects and in those suffering from diseases affecting the retina.
Profile: Ophthalmologists, orthoptists and physicists interested in retinal imaging applications.
Organisation of the training: 1 day of theoretical training + ½ day of practice
The last international seminar dedicated to adaptive optics ophthalmoscopy for the retina took place on 4 & 5 September 2019 in Paris.
Training to Good Clinical Practices
On-line GCP training is offered to network members (ophthalmologists, orthoptists, CRA ...). This training is recognized by most of health companies.
A training account is open to members who wish it; they then have 6 months to complete the training at their own pace.
