International Eye Bank of Prague (IEBP) was established in 1991 as the first Eye bank in Czech Republic.
From its inception, the intention was to create an institution that can provide the highest quality, safe tissue as well as providing education to other members and enhance eye banking globally. This accredited and certified IFEB Training Center has trained more than 150 professionals from 26 countries to date. Each one is now a leader in eye banking and transplantation in their own country.
With full support of Fakultní Nemocnice Královské Vinohrady Hospital of Charles University and its Department of Ophthalmology, this IFEB Training Center provides onsite educational programs for various eye banking procedures and techniques, as well as customized courses for experienced professionals. There are three different levels of curriculum for Medical Directors, Eye Bank Managers and technicians. This curriculum will allow trainees to learn and develop their skills in ways that adapt to their own country and environment, without compromising safety and quality.
