About the BCSC

The Academy's Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC) is ophthalmology's definitive compilation of scientific research and clinical experience. It is continually updated by a faculty of more than 80 expert ophthalmologists. Each of the 13 volumes includes fundamental clinical knowledge; numerous tables, photos and illustrations; self-assessment questions with answers; and opportunities for earning AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(TM).

Beginning with the 2013-2014 edition, the Academy and the European Board of Ophthalmology (EBO) have partnered to make the BCSC the standard text for all European ophthalmology training programs.
