Joan Prat Bartomeu
In addition to my role as Head of Department, I lead the paediatric Oculoplastic Unit. Indeed, our Department was the first in Europe to develop this sub-specialty. I also work in biotechnological innovation, developing exploratory devices. I also collaborate with two African countries, training local ophthalmologists in Paediatric Ophthalmology in Mozambique and Senegal. I am the director of a Master's degree in Paediatric Ophthalmology at the University of Barcelona, the first and only one degree course of this kind in the country. I am the president of the Spanish Eye and Orbital Plastic Surgery Society (SECPOO). "I believe in disseminating the best paediatric ophthalmology practices throughout the world, and if I don't have a solution for something, I will seek it out".
