Complete your specialized training

The Barraquer Ophthalmology Centre hosts ophthalmology resident doctors, who carry out their MIR training in other hospitals nationwide and who request to complete their training in one of our departments or subspecialized areas.

These official rotations of residents between hospitals will be authorized by the competent body of each Autonomous Community in accordance with its specific regulations. In all cases, they must be proposed by the tutor to the Teaching Commission, specifying the objectives that are intended for the expansion of knowledge or the learning of techniques not carried out in the Centre or Unit and that are necessary or complementary to the official program of the specialty.

For its authorization, the Teaching Commission of the destination centre must expressly declare its agreement.
