Reach your professional goals
The Barraquer Institute gives all professionals the opportunity to undertake an external rotation at the Barraquer Ophthalmology Centre. During the programme, a tutor gives each student personalised supervision so that each one reaches their professional goals.
Any medical ophthalmologist or house doctor (from STR upward) can access this programme. It is also suitable for doctors from overseas provided they have a level of Spanish equivalent to a C1. The programmes begin in January, April and September and last between 1 and 3 months depending on the specialism chosen.
We train professionals who are highly qualified in ophthalmic subspecialisms.

- Refractive surgery and cataracts
