In recent weeks the Australian Vision Research Chair Stephanie Watson and CEO Phillip Cenere met with the RANZCO CEO Mark Carmichael, to follow up on a Memorandum of Understanding, written to build on the existing relationship between the  two organisations.

This MOU provides the basis for formal and informal liaison to ensure that optimal resourcing – intellectual, physical and financial – can be brought to achieve shared objectives.

It also promotes collaborative cooperation to enhance the standing of the ophthalmology specialty within Australia and, by extension, New Zealand. Each organisation commits to assist the other in shared objectives, subject to resource availability and capability.

Australian Vision Research looks forward to continued collaboration, support and their relationship with RANZCO and their foundation ANZEF, to lift the profession higher and increase the benefits to Australians and New Zealanders in the days and years to come.
