For our senior ophthalmology residents in the USA, there are only 5 months left in your training program. It’s time to figure out where your deficiencies lie and then to address them with concentrated effort. If you are going into practice starting in July, this is even more critical since you will be expected to compete with more experienced surgeons in the community. Even if you are planning a fellowship starting in July, that will only grant you one or two more years of surgical training. The jump from training to practice is a big one and there are some unexpected challenges that you may not realize are coming. This video explains more and is full of great advice. And tomorrow’s video is an unedited, real-time cataract surgery by a resident which will show you the skill level you should have achieved by case 100.
