Statement of Goals:
The neuro-ophthalmology rotation is designed for medical students who are interested in ophthalmology as a career. The rotation offers direct one-on-one traching with the Chair of Ophthalmology at The Methodist Hospital as well as other faculty members, residents, and fellows on the neuro-ophthalmology service. As opposed to other ophthalmic rotations no particular additional skill other than those already possessed by a typical medical student (e.g., handlight, direct ophthalmoscope, confrontation visual fields and mortility assessment) are required for the rotation. The rotation also might be suitable for medical students interested in neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, or interventional radiology as there is considerable overlap in these fields with neuro-ophthalmic patients.
Learning Activities
The student time commitment shall be from Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. There is no student call, night, after hours, or weekend responsibility. No pre-requisite readings required but students may be asked to research small case vignettes or present at ophthalmology grand rounds during the rotation.
Evaluation Methods
The student shall receive daily oral evaluation and feedback on performance. At the conclusion of the rotation, the student will demonstrate mastery of the elective's education objectives by showing the preceptor a brief portfolio documenting the cases seen. A short oral exam (30 minutes) covering the edcuational objectives will follow the rotation. The grading scale shall be as follows: H, HP, P, MP, F.
