VTMED 5608 - Ophthalmology Service

Fall, winter, spring, summer. 2 credits. Letter grades only.

Required component of Clinical Rotations (Foundation Course VI).

T. Kern, N. Irby, E. C. Ledbetter.

Combines clinical experience with beginning skills in diagnostic ophthalmology. Students learn how to apply the ophthalmic diagnostic tests. A competent ocular examination is the goal of this rotation. Confidence in using direct and indirect ophthalmoscopes, slit lamps, tonometers, conjunctival cytology, and surgery comes with the practice provided by this rotation. This rotation provides surgical experience and consultations. A high percentage of the consultations are referral cases that usually challenge the service. Adequate routine case material is presented to prepare most students for practice.
