c- ACADEMIC and SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENTS
In January/February. 2006. Dr. HASSAN has attended the Moroccane
Ophthalmology Congress in Marakesch. This has led to promote and start an
Electro-Ophthalmology Unit (E.O.U.) at the department of Ophthalmology-B, head
of the department; Prof. A. Berahho, the University Medical Centre, C.H.U., in Rabat in collaboration
with Ronald Consult Company, Mr. J. Finger, from Germany. A Ronald
Consult Ophthalmic Electro-Diagnostic system has been installed at the
department. E.O.U. aims at prognosis, diagnosis and follow up of specific eye
diseases as related to the visual pathway starting from the retina. This is to
offer better service to eye and the visual system to raise the eye welfare
system in an attempt to prevent/delay/postpone blindness. St. MORI has
intermediated in this project where dr. Hassan has carried out successful installation of the system, onsite training of
personnel and had conducted many lectures and presentation related to
techniques, methods and handling procedures of required tests which must be
performed by the system.
At the Ophthalmology Department, operating theatre Dr. Hassan has
contributed in surgical sessions in collaboration with other colleagues and supervision
of Mrs. prof. Berahho.
St.MORI has been presented in international conferences in Glasgow and London via the
presentations of dr. Hassan where many contacts had been carried out for possible
mutual collaboration to achieve St. MORI objectives. As a result there
might be a possibility to promote and deliver more help in Ophthalmic Service
both in Medical as well as Surgical managements. These might be realized via
collaboration with potential producers and manufacturers.
