The Department of Ophthalmology of the Medical University of Graz has set the common goal to improve the quality of ophthalmic resident training with the EFQM-model and unified learning targets based on international guidelines (ICO, EBO). Now there is a central request to implement additional in-depth curricula in Ophthalmology. Aim of this paper is to present a detailed 6 months curriculum in ophthalmic resident training in Strabology within the training period for a general ophthalmologist. Based on the desire to establish different curricula for in-depth training of residents in Ophthalmology, a structured curriculum in accordance with international criteria and a feedback system-with the RADAR logic based on the EFQM quality model-was introduced. A self-assessment-a "quick scan" and "should stand survey"aEuro"was performed and, based on that, a concept was created by three working groups. The self-assessment showed that there is partially a lack of a structured training according to international criteria with goals and a feedback system. A concept with a defined training aim was set, an initial phase, an implementation phase, an evaluation phase and an ongoing feedback system were established. The curriculum is approved and it consists of a clearly structured process of a six-month training. The learning targets are accorded with international education levels and there are clear responsibilities of certain educators. For the purposes of the EFQM model a feedback system was implemented during and at the end of the 6-month training set. The EFQM model and the RADAR-logic is a suitable system to establish successfully in-depth training for residents in Ophthalmology. With its strategic feedback system it is responding to the needs of constant restructuring procedures of the curricula.
