Case Discussion

Ophthalmology Education   Posted By Dr Anurag Thakral    Date : 06-Jun-01   01:03 AM     Reply

I believe that our resident education system has many shortcomings that deserve serious consideration. During the three years of our `training' a lot of time is wasted and the actual `learning'forms only a fraction. Added to this is the lack of formal teaching in the form of regular lectures or regular case discussions in the presence of senior consultants. Above all I want to highlight the bitter fact that young ophthalmologists don't see teaching as a profession and those who join teaching posts do so more as a `temporary stopover' than for the love of teaching.

I invite views from acadamecians and those who are in the teaching profession and from all ophthalmologists. I welcome suggestions regarding the above problem. It is only by a collective effort that we can make Ophthalmology education in India see the dawn of a new era.

Thank You
