There are six exam rooms that the residents share. If a patient has not been seen yet by a resident, pull their chart from the exam door, review it and be comfortable performing a basic history and ophthalmic examination prior to chiefing your patient with one of the residents.
RUHS surgeries are scheduled to start at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday. Plan to see a few cataracts and/or retina surgeries during your rotation. There is a computer screen connected to the operating microscope that allows you to see the surgery.
