    The World Assocation of Eye Hospitals

    De World Association of Eye Hospitals kortweg WAEH is een wereldwijd netwerk van oogziekenhuizen. Sinds de oprichting in Rotterdam in 2007 is de WAEH uitgegroeid tot een wereldwijde vereniging van 45 oogziekenhuizen of oogheelkundige centra.

    Philogirl organiseert al sinds de oprichting alle events: van de jaarlijkse meeting tot de board meetings. Daarnaast wordt er een keer per jaar ook nog een meeting georganiseerd over een specifiek onderwerp, zoals bijvoorbeeld 'Healthcare of the Future'.

WAEH 2016 Meeting

Van 25 mei tot en met 29 mei 2016 vond de 10e annual meeting van de World Association of Eye Hospitals in Rotterdam plaats. Philogirl organiseerde in samenwerking met het team van het Oogzorgnetwerk en Het Oogziekenhuis Rotterdam het jubileumjaar.

“The annual meeting of the WAEH was special and unexpected. As a physician, I was surprised to learn a great deal from this meeting not about scientific medical things but how to share ideas and improve our clinic and OR systems.   There are many common problems worldwide.  The exchange was excellent for better understanding and solutions of patient flow and efficiency.”

“ Mijn complimenten voor de uitstekende organisatie. Iedereen was vol lof.
Ik vond het erg leuk om er gisteren bij te zijn geweest. “

“We are most indebted to the Rotterdam Eye Hospital team and The Eyecare Network team for the excellent organisation of the 10th WAEH meeting.  The content of the conference and level of deliberations has been superb and the wonderful social events would surely bring us fond memories for many years to come. We hope all of you will now be able to take some well deserved rest and let's keep in touch!”

“Congratulations on a successful meeting in Rotterdam, our staff enjoyed and benefited very much from the excellent programme and warm hospitality from all at the REH!”

“ Thank you very much for organizing such an enjoyable, informative and very well organized meeting.

"We enjoyed the meeting and the very generous hospitality very much. We can not wait to share our experience with our team here in our eye hospital.”

“I think this was a great meeting and most people said so.It was great seeing you again, as always full of energy and enthusiasm – it’s contagious!”

“The meeting was excellent, really. It couldn't have been organized in a better way; perfect from start to finish. Much much more interesting than "medical" conferences we go to, definitely. And the format and variety of activities really facilitated networking. I am sure WAEH will continue to grow and flourish because the people behind it have a clear vision and mean well.”
