These are suggested starting points based on year of residency training. The typical USA training is 4 years of university for a bachelor’s degree, 4 years of medical school for MD degree, 1 year internship (PGY1), then 3 years of residency training (PGY2, PGY3, PGY4). PGY stands for post-graduate year since these are the years after completion of the MD degree. A one or two year sub-specialty fellowship is optional after residency training.

Start with understanding the learning grid of ocular surgery, and then go through the videos listed below. Remember, this is just the start — you need to watch many more videos than this!

PGY2 Residents (first full year of ophthalmology residency in USA)

PGY3 Residents (junior year of ophthalmology residency in USA)

PGY4 Residents (senior year of ophthalmology residency in USA)
