Join Us

SWORM is always keen to welcome new members!


Who can apply?

SWORM was originally started to encourage Ophthalmology trainees in the South West Peninsula Deanery to become more involved in research. At this stage we are recruiting ophthalmology trainees belonging to the Peninsula Deanery. Soon, we aim to extend this to all ophthalmology trainees, research nurses, medical students and other enthusiastic people! If you are interested in SWORM and are not sure if you are eligible to join, then please contact us.
