Med 1 & 2 Elective Unit

The ophthalmology department participates in the Med 1 and 2 elective unit. This longitudinal, half elective occurs during the fall or winter term over a 12-week period. Due to more interest than availability, we only offer a half-unit elective so that we may accommodate more students. Students will be assigned a main preceptor in the ophthalmology department and will join them for clinics and ORs (schedule permitting). As part of the elective students are expected to complete a scholarly project.

During this elective students are welcome to attend the Dept of Ophthalmology Grand Rounds.
