hey everyone, I was just wondering if anyone has insight into which schools are recommended for ophtho electives? And in what other specialties should you have electives in? Do they for sure have to be related to surgical fields such as plastics or ENT? I was also wondering if anyone has info regarding applying to Quebec schools for ophtho if you're not a Quebec resident? For example, are there any return-of-service agreements or anything? Thanks in advance!
I noticed some schools suggested a visual acuity score of 20/20 was recommended for their residency program (on CaRMS program description). How important is this (in terms of getting into the residency and practicing as an ophthalmologist)? Do ophthalmologist generally not wear glasses?
Hey folks, My cousin is an ophthalmology resident and he helped me get involved in the field quite a bit during undergrad. I was wondering how much is required to get into the residency? I've done 3 year research project with his former supervisor which I'll present at the COS conference, went to Ghana for Unite for Sight, chaired an organization that provides visual acuity exams for children (mostly on raising awareness of local services, not diagnostics) and now we will be conducting an ophthalmic outreach in the inner-city this summer. I'm not sure if that is a strong enough start or how much more I'd need to engage in to be competitive. Of course doing every elective as ophtho and continuing research work as much as possible is key, but what else is there?
