    Anyone done this elective? I've heard a few stories, but any other input would be appreciated.

    The ophthalmology rotation at IMC is great! It is a DO program now, so AUA student's cannot match there. But they have residents who are eager and happy to teach. You are required to read Basic Ophthamology (get on Amazon), which is geared towards medical students. Most days you see patients with your residents. They teach and pimp on the go. Depending on the day of the week, there is a resident lecture, lectures by the attending, and an optional grand rounds. These days they have been getting fewer students than they would to work with. You are required to do a 5page paper and a ppt presentation if you do a 4wk rotation.

    I came out of this rotation having mastered my ophthalmoscope and learned how to read an ophtho note. Certainly stuff I didn't see in IM or FM. Hours are 8am - 5pm. In short, I recommend it. You will be at the Bishop clinic, not at IMC's main campus.
