Guidelines for Senior Year for Students in Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences
Here are your Guidelines for Senior Year for Students in Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences
All Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences residency training programs require satisfactory completion of the first postgraduate clinical year (PGY-1) in an accredited program. At a minimum, 6 months of the year should provide a broad experience in direct patient care. Most pursue PGY-1 training in preliminary internal medicine, orin a transitional program.
Students seriously considering ophthalmology as a career choice should gain necessary exposure to make an informed decision. Because ophthalmology has an early match (January), students should take ophthalmology electives within the first four months of the M4 year. Clinical clerkships take place at Kellogg Eye Center, the Ann Arbor VAMC, the Ophthalmology Inpatient Consultation Unit, and Henry Ford Hospital. Outside rotations are also available at select teaching hospitals nationwide as arranged by the student. Ophthalmology research electives can be valuable as well. If participating in the ophthalmology match, an ophthalmology faculty member should be assigned as the student’sclinical advisor. To read rest of the article submit your email below:
