NRC to host RCOphth refraction exams

ABDO and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) are collaborating to host and deliver the RCOphth Refraction Certificate examination – one of four examinations that a trainee ophthalmologist takes to qualify.

From 2020, ABDO’s National Resource Centre (NRC) in Birmingham will become the permanent home for this examination.

Dylan Costello, RCOphth head of examinations, said: “The state of-the-art venue will enable the RCOphth to continue to be able to deliver a robust examination with the stability that it requires. We are excited to be undertaking this new relationship with the NRC in the development of our exam delivery.”

Phil Hall, ABDO head of the NRC, added: “This is an exciting new collaboration for ABDO and the RCOphth, and we are extremely pleased that they will be making the most of our extensive range of facilities on an ongoing basis for the refraction exam.”
