The DTH offers healthcare professionals a range of training opportunities, including Sandwich Fellowships, Observerships, and Hospital Based Trainings. These programs, delivered through a blended learning approach, equip professionals with the skills and knowledge they need to tackle any challenge. The Remote Surgical Mentorships offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn from the best, with global experts providing mentorship during live ophthalmic surgeries.
