Welcome to ophthalmology! We’re here to support you in your discovery as you start your training. Through YO Info newsletters, the American Academy of Ophthalmology offers trainees and young attendings numerous resources to help you successfully start your career. In addition to the annual resident edition, each month, YO Info regularly publishes new clinical pearls and advice for coding and practice management and also highlights international and advocacy opportunities.
We also work hard to spotlight people just like you — accomplished young ophthalmologists who are dedicated and work to further our field. Over 7,000 ophthalmologists receive and enjoy YO Info domestically and abroad. It’s a privilege for us to add you to the fold.
We hope you find YO Info Resident Edition to be a helpful preparatory tool and invite you to collaborate with us on bettering your experience as a new young ophthalmologist, which we call a “YO.”
In addition, we offer free, specially designed programming for YOs attending the Academy’s annual meeting through our monthly e-newsletter. Previous editions of YO Info Resident Edition and other helpful articles are online.
We’re excited to have you join us!
The Resident Edition is available as a series of web pages or as a single PDF. Tip: To save online articles for future reference, log in with your member account and click "Add to My To-Do List." Download and print the PDF if you prefer a paper copy.
