Description and Goals:

This course is designed to introduce the student to the basics of the ocular examination and the management of common ophthalmic problems through intensive participation in all aspects of the resident outpatient clinic and specialty clinics, including UMAB and VA clinics. The student also gets to interact via the consult service with Ophthalmic problems associated with other specialties. The experience can be textured to students specific needs or interests. Time is also available to observe a variety of ocular surgical procedures and to learn the general practice of ophthalmology. Students are expected to attend Grand Rounds and all other regularly scheduled conferences and lectures.
