Does rural primary care ophthalmology teaching need revisiting?

Chirag Patel

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


Recently, I read a reflective piece to the Editor of the Eye on the undergraduate view of ophthalmology teaching in the UK [1]. This was an article that struck a chord with me, especially since I read medicine at the same University as the author. Reading this article, it appears that not much has changed in undergraduate ophthalmology training since I finished my undergraduate medical degree. For me, Ophthalmology was not delivered to the level that would prepare me for clinical practice. This problem has been talked about for decades now [2, 3]. Nevertheless, the issue remains.
