OPHT 300A: Ophthalmology Clerkship

VISITING: Open to visitors. TYPE OF CLERKSHIP: Selective 1. DESCRIPTION: This clinical clerkship provides brief broad exposure to general and subspecialty ophthalmology at Stanford University. The clerkship consists of spending time in clinic, the OR, and teaching sessions. Designed to accommodate students of differing levels of interest from those wanting a long-term career in ophthalmology to those who are just starting out and want to know how to spell ophthalmology. Rotation provides exposure at three clinical sites: Byers Eye Institute (Stanford), the Palo Alto VA, and Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. Students will visit each of the locations over the course of the rotation, spending your first and fourth weeks at one site, and the 2nd and 3rd weeks at each of the other two locations. Credentialing: Because of the exposure at three different clinical sites, students need to obtain site access prior to the start of the rotation. We have a streamlined process, but for visiting students, you will need to fill out the paperwork 6-8 weeks before the rotation begins. Please note: Visiting students are welcome (Due to COVID-19, enrollment will resume in period 3 or later). This clerkship is designed to provide broad exposure to ophthalmology training at Stanford. It will offer a glimpse into a training program that differs from your home institution and will hopefully aid in your residency selection process. FULL DISCLOSURE: For visiting students, participation in this clinical clerkship has a minimal, if any, impact on the likelihood of matching as a Stanford Ophthalmology resident. Because the rotation provides broad ophthalmic exposure, it results in spending shorter sessions with many different attendings. While we are not trying to dissuade students from visiting the Stanford program, we do want to be transparent that the rotation is not designed nor does it serve as a stepping stone into the residency program for visiting students. Broadly, this rotation is best suited for students who come from medical schools without large academic ophthalmology programs. For such students, this rotation provides an idea of what such a program feels like first hand and can aid in their future residency selection process. For students who are interested in more in depth interactions in a subspecialty of ophthalmology, the Ophto 398A may be more amenable by providing a 1-on-1 preceptorship opportunity for four weeks. Visiting students must obtain preapproval to apply from Dr. Ira Schachar prior to applying for this clerkship. Please email requests to Jingjing Chang at jchang24@stanford.edu. PREREQUISITES: Because of the rotation between sites, students must have access to some form transportation (it is a long bike ride between Byers and the VA, but you need a car to get to SCVMC). At all sites, parking is free. PERIODS AVAILABLE: 1-12. Full-time for 4 weeks, 3 students per period. CLERKSHIP DIRECTOR: Ira Schachar, M.D., ischacha@stanford.edu. CLERKSHIP COORDINATOR: Jingjing Chang, jchang24@stanford.edu. Please email Ira Schachar with questions at: ischacha@stanford.edu. REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS: Where: You will receive information regarding location and time the week prior to the start of the rotation; Time: TBA. CALL CODE: 2. OTHER FACULTY: The rotation is designed to provide broad exposure to the ophthalmic subspecialties at each of the three clinical sites. LOCATION: SUMC, PAVAMC, SCVMC.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 6
Instructors: Schachar, I. (PI)

OPHT 300E: Ophthalmology Clerkship

VISITING: Open to visitors.TYPE OF CLERKSHIP: Selective 1. DESCRIPTION: Does the thought of evaluating diplopia, eye pain, or vision loss in a patient give you palpitations? This is the rotation for you. Offers a hands on, comprehensive experience focused on sharpening clinical eye examination skills and rationally evaluating ophthalmic conditions and problems. Students will examine patients with a variety of common and uncommon eye conditions, teach patients about their eye diseases, and learn to recognize situations that warrant referral to an ophthalmologist. Learning is enhanced through digital imaging techniques based on anterior and posterior segment ocular visualization, as well as newer modalities such as optical coherence tomography. Location is in lovely wine country in Livermore, with a cottage available for lodging, so your commute is to walk across the driveway, avoiding the wild turkeys. In addition to educational materials supplied during the rotation, students can also more »

OPHT 398A: Elective in Ophthalmology

VISITING: Open to visitors. TYPE OF CLERKSHIP: Elective. DESCRIPTION: The 398A clinical clerkship is best described as a preceptorship. Unlike 300A and 301A which provide broad exposure to both general and subspecialty ophthalmology, in 398A, the student spends 4 weeks with a single physician. The preceptor can work at any of the three clinical sites: Byers Eye Center, Palo Alto VA, or Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. 398A can be an excellent rotation to form a more substantive relationship with a mentor. Please note: Stanford students cannot add 398A clerkships directly to their fishbowl schedules through the regular shuffles. Please contact Caroline Cheang in the Office of Medical Student Affairs at cheang@stanford.edu with the faculty preceptor's name and email address to add this clerkship. Credentialing: Students require site access at their preceptor¿s location prior to the start of the rotation. Because of the exposure at three different clinical sites, students need to obtain site access prior to the start of the rotation. We have a streamlined process, but for visiting students, you will need to fill out the paperwork 6-8 weeks before the rotation begins. Visiting students are welcome. Full Disclosure: For visiting students, participation in this clinical clerkship has a minimal, if any, impact on the likelihood of matching as a Stanford Ophthalmology resident. Visiting students must have a confirmed preceptor in the Department of Ophthalmology and obtain preapproval to apply from Dr. Ira Schachar prior to applying for this clerkship. Please email requests to Jingjing Chang at jchang24@stanford.edu. PREREQUISITES: A preceptor MUST be identified and secured by the student prior to the start of the rotation. PERIODS AVAILABLE: 1-12, full time for 4 weeks, 3 students per period. CLERKSHIP DIRECTOR: Ira Schachar, M.D., ischacha@stanford.edu. CLERKSHIP COORDINATOR: Jingjing Chang, jchang24@stanford.edu.
