Each year 2 to 3 projects are led by our member eye hospitals to help shape and improve ophthalmic care on a global scale. Each project can be budgeted with a budget of 7.500 euro. This is paid from the fees of the WAEH membership. We would like to invite you again to share your project ideas.
Current projects are the WAEH Medical Outcome project and the WAEH Clinician Burn out project.
What about the Project Groups?
They are WAEH Member-led
They collaborate on specific themes from Artificial intelligence to Medical outcomes
They network and brainstorm via online Zoom meetings to maximise the impact and reach of sharing knowledge during the projects
They share their lessons learned, knowledge and experience also via the WAEH knowledge hub and via the WAEH newsletter
They host a round table and present their project during the Annual Meeting
