This course is a compulsory component of the Master of Community Eye Health (OPTM8761) and is taken in session two of this one-year program. The program is delivered off shore, at the International Centre for Advancement of Rural Eyecare (ICARE) in Hyderabad, India, and the research will normally be conducted at the location under supervision of a suitably qualified and experienced member of ICARE staff and in many cases with joint or co-supervision by a member of staff based at UNSW. In some cases, however, the project may be conducted elsewhere, if appropriate supervision is available at the alternative location.

This course is only offered as part of the Master of Community Eye Health (OPTM8761) program.
