The Postgraduate Diploma in Ophthalmology is structured to produce a competent ‘eye doctor’, with the Master of Medicine (Ophthalmology) training an ‘ophthalmologist’. If a country has a need and resources for an eye doctor, but not an ophthalmologist, the training can usefully end with the Diploma. However, if the population size, service facilities and equipment, and availability of staff make an ophthalmologist the preferred practitioner, then the training may be taken to that level after the student has spent two years practicing.
