Medicine is a changing science that is rapidly and constantly evolving. For this reason, continuous medical education is mandatory. Teaching is both a key element and a long tradition in the ICR. Evidence for this, is for example, the vast calendar of programmed clinical sessions, addressed to update the knowledge of specialists and residents. The general clinical sessions are certified by the Catalan Council for the Medical Continuous Training (“Consell Català de la Formació Mèdica Continuada”) Committee for the Continuous Training of the National Health System (3,9 university credits). Since 2001 the ICR has been certified to train doctors in ophthalmology (Residentship Programme).

The Comisión Nacional de la Especialidad en Oftalmología del Ministerio de Sanidad (The National Committee for the Ophthalmology Specialty of the Health Department) granted two yearly MIR positions in Ophthalmology for Medical Internal Residents, linked to the Hospital Universitari Sagrat Cor. In 2007 a step forward was achieved, by offering the Fellowship Programme (Masters Degree for the University of Barcelona), as postgraduate training programme in ophthalmic subspecialties.
