Further to the application of the Royal Decree of 16 March, 1999, at the end of the first two years of training, the candidate will receive an attestation proving that he has successfully accomplished a specific university training course. At the end of his four years of training, the candidate will present a thesis and a publication in a specialised review. The final evaluation will be principally based on a group exam.
Upon fulfilment of the above-described training requirements, the teaching committee will award the academic title in Ophtalmology. This title does not replace official recognition by the ministerial validation committee. It attests the successful completion of an academic and scientific study programme in the context of a specialised training programme leading to this validation.
