  • Simulation in Resident Education

  • Overview

    Simulation based training has proven value in teaching surgical skills to ophthalmology residents and fellows. Additionally, simulations can be effective for the practicing ophthalmologist to prepare for a specific procedure which he or she has not had recent experience with, prior to performing that procedure on a patient. Listed here are simulation tools and resources organized by category. This page is curated by the Academy's Committee for Resident Education.
