• From the Editor’s Desk

    We proudly present our fifth-annual YO Info Resident Edition! This edition was specially crafted for first-year residents in ophthalmology by members of the Academy’s YO Info editorial board to give you a high-yield rock-star start to your year. The Academy and its Young Ophthalmologist (YO) Committee and three subcommittees (Advocacy, International and the YO Info editorial board) have a long-term strategy to engage members in training and those in their first five years of practice. YO Info is a free online e-newsletter that you and 6,000 other YOs in the United States and abroad receive monthly. The content focuses on practice management, clinical pearls, international opportunities, spotlights on outstanding YOs and advocacy for our profession. You may also visit aao.org/yo to view the previous four editions of YO Info Resident Edition as well as current articles from the monthly newsletter.

    We hope these valuable tools help you in your training and beyond!
