As a core aspect of our mission to end blindness around the world, SEE offers MSICS training to practicing ophthalmologists and medical residents.
SEE’s MSICS Education program began in 2006 by holding a single training course in which only ten surgeons participated. In the sixteen years since that first course, the program has continuously grown, holding over 150 courses and training over 950 eyecare professionals.
In the Level 1 course, aspiring humanitarian ophthalmologists take a day-long course that consists of didactic lecture and a practical wet lab.
Upon successful completion of a Level 1 MSICS course, participants may be eligible to enroll in a Level 2 course. This is a multi-day one-on-one training using the MSICS technique in an international setting.

SEE offers Level 1 and Level 2 MSICS courses throughout the year.
