The European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons


Dear European Council Member,

The European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons is launching a range of new
initiatives for resident and trainee ophthalmologists including a free membership for
doctors under 40 years of age. This new membership package will include an online subscription
to the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, free access to ESCRS on Demand and reduced
registration fees for the ESCRS  Annual Congress. In addition applications are open online at
www.escrs.org for our observership grant of €1,000 to contribute to the cost of young trainees
travelling to a hospital or institution outside their own country.

We would like very much to communicate this news to as many trainee and young ophthalmologists
as possible and would appreciate your advice on how best this could be accomplished in your country.
We would especially appreciate a list of the training hospitals and departments in your region and the
name of the department head so we could send to them copies of our publications and more information
on our meetings and membership possibilities.

Thank you very much for your assistance. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Very best wishes

Carol Fitzpatrick
Deputy Chief Executive
