Welcome to the Phaco Fundamentals Classroom (PFC) – the ASCRS open source online classroom for phaco training and education.

Our interactive classroom is a collection of carefully selected online resources supporting residents and surgeons worldwide who are seeking to improve their phaco skills. This classroom requires only online registration without any access fees. Our site features several leading phaco courses that have been video captured and archived – including the Harvard and Northwestern resident phaco courses. Soon to be added will be the UCSF resident COAST course, the UCLA resident phaco course, and the ASCRS Cataract Clinical Committee Phaco Fundamentals Course.
