However students who wish to practice practical techniques under supervision of a clinician have the choice of attending the optional week long practical techniques review at Madrid, Spain or Toronto, Canada, once per semester. The practical lab is not part of the PhD (OCR) program and students can graduate without attending the lab. Attendance is not mandatory.
