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 one week at each site. 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 we need you to fill out the paperwork 6-8 weeks before the rotation begins. This is particularly important for external students.This clerkship is designed to provide broad exposure to ophthalmology training at Stanford. If a visiting student, this clerkship will offer a glimpse into a training program that differs from your home institution and will hopefully aid in your residency selection process. *COVID-19 Changes:* Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, rotations have been restructured and reduced in length from 4-weeks to 3-weeks. This has resulted in a reduction in availability with preference being given to Stanford medical students. Visiting students must verify with their home institution that this shorter 3-week rotation will satisfy their away rotation requirements prior to applying. The rotation is designed to provide broad exposure to the ophthalmic subspecialties at each of the three clinical sites. PREREQUISITES: Because of the rotation between sites, students must have access to some form transportation (it's a long bike ride between Byers and the VA, but you need a car to get to SCVMC). At all sites, parking is free. Visiting students are welcome. See below for rotation schedule changes due to COVID-19. Full Disclosure: participation in this clinical clerkship has minimal, if any, impact on the likelihood of matching as a Stanford Ophthalmology resident. PERIODS AVAILABLE: 1-16. Full-time for 3 weeks, 3 students per period. CLERKSHIP DIRECTOR: Ira Schachar, M.D., ischacha@stanford.edu. CLERKSHIP COORDINATOR: Jingjing Chang, jchang24@stanford.edu. For now please email Ira Schachar with questions at: ischacha@stanford.edu. REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS: Where: Byers Eye Center unless instructed otherwise; Time: 9:00AM. CALL CODE: 2.
