The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital in Melbourne is marking their 150th anniversary by hosting a series of public lectures during 2013 to honour the many decades of teaching and training provided by the hospital's innovative specialists. The series will include a lecture about Indigenous health to be held on National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week.
Professor Stephen O'Leary will deliver a lecture at the hospital on 9 July 2013 about outreach clinics that were run by the Royal Victoria Eye and Ear Hospital in Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. The remaining lectures in the series will feature presentations from hospital staff, as well as guest lectures from members of their research team and their clinical partner organisations, and will cover a variety of topical issues relating to ear and eye health, including the critical link between research and clinical care.
The series began in March 2013 and will run through to August 2013, and all members of the public are welcome to attend.
The hospital has a long history of providing innovative learning pathways to generations of eye, ear, nose and throat specialists since they first began instructing medical students from the University of Melbourne in 1882.
