Hi, don't want to derail the convo but I've been trying to get involved in eye-related research at school. Could I message you for advice on how you found a mentor, etc.?

I'm also doing research down at the University of Ohio related to age-related macular degeneration so feel free to message me too if you want any tips or info on how to find research!

General Discussion / Retina - Residency
« Last post by gfpstar on February 20, 2020, 02:22:23 PM »
Hey guys. Its hard to get a sense for which residencies are better than others online as it seems to change with faculty shifts etc. Any ideas what makes up the top 20ish for somebody looking to get into retina? Any opinions very much appreciated. I'm a current medical student by the way.

I know some programs which tend to match well are Stanford, Vanderbilt, Colorado, Beaumont (Royal Oak), Tufts. Iím sure there are many others but those are a few that come to mind.

How will they be able to distinguish higher scores from lower scores? Pass/fail cutoff? Don't residencies care about performance?

If only they changed this for the MCAT.........  :'(

I've wondered that!  This happened a lot to me when I was driving through the desert highways in Arizona and Nevada.  It's pretty crazy how hot it gets on the road in the summer months.  People end up at the hospital for burns from the pavement or asphalt!

That's really cool!  It's amazing how the eye is so similar to the inner workings of a camera lens -- or should I say camera lenses are similar to the eye!
