Background and objectives
This English curriculum has been peer-reviewed and should be translated into french as-is, preferably keeping the same formatting. The translation will be reviewed and edited by a French-speaking ophthalmic educator to ensure medical accuracy before the translation is made available to the public. The duration of this task is flexible. Please let us know if an extension is needed for completion.
Translation and interpretation
The updated ICO Residency Curriculum offers an international consensus on what residents in ophthalmology should be taught. While the ICO curriculum provides a standardized content outline for ophthalmic training, it has been designed to be revised and modified, with the precise local detail for implementation left to the local educators. Translation into French will make this tool more accessible to French-speaking educators, program directors, and ophthalmic residents in low resource countries. This curriculum will be available on our website at no cost to downloaders, with the goal of improving ophthalmic residency education worldwide. The translation and English versions are promoted quarterly via our organizational newsletter. Additionally, our organization runs several Residency Program Directors Courses around the world where this curriculum is offered as a tool for course participants. Volunteer translators will be acknowledged on the website and in any newsletter promotions.
Volunteers: 1 needed
1-5 hours per week / 8 weeks
Education or medical experience is appreciated but not necessary, as the final translation will be reviewed and edited by a French-speaking ophthalmic educator who is familiar with the original document.
