Special Notice – paid up member benefits

Final reminder to renew your IACLE membership to ensure your exclusive access continues

We are making some changes to the membership renewal process to ensure exclusive access to full benefits remains for our paid-up members. This year, we are extending our successful TLC Initiative and adding further member-only benefits to support and connect our members:

  • The Student Area within IACLETOP has developed further, providing additional benefits for educators and their students. The area includes access to the Student Trial Exam, IACLE Case Report Series – available in two formats, as self-directed learning and as flipped classes – student access to our recorded global webinars, and the ability for educators to develop their own teaching materials 
  • The IACLE Contact Lens Course is exclusively available via IACLETOP, with translations into core and other languages 
  • The Distance Learning Program, launching in March, is designed to improve educators’ contact lens knowledge. We encourage members who intend to sit the IACLE Fellowship Exam to utilize the program that will be available in English, Spanish, Korean and Chinese 
  • The Fellowship Exam will take place on 14 November 2021 via IACLETOP, with preparation assistance through the Fellowship Area within IACLETOP, launching in April
  • The IACLE Library – a searchable database of donated clinical images, videos and PDFs launching at the end of February
  • A second Virtual Conference in April themed ‘Integrating research into education’
  • A new program of weekly themed webinars on a global, regional and national basis

To ensure your exclusive access to all of the above membership benefits continue, please renew your membership before the end of February to avoid a late fee
