Good source for patients
I’ve had pediatric uveitis and recently learned that I have retinal vasculitis. As a patient with no medical education or training, I’m finding this podcast very useful to better understand my own condition and to build a shared vocabulary with my ophthalmologist. 1) Could you please do a podcast on retinal vasculitis? 2) The first time you mention a new term, could you please state the full name and not just the acronym even if it’s obvious to medical students? Keep up the great work!
I’m a first year
Loved the pontificating and literature review that Andrew did in the Hyphema episode. Impressed that you guys keep doing this beyond residency training, thank you so much! The hyphema episode was what me write this review. “basically your eyes ar really just little balloons of acid” love it.
There have been times trying to read or do questions, that I whip out this podcast to see what others are doing, and I’m so relieved to hear that this is all so new.
I hope you guys find ways to keep doing this or find a new team of residents to take over when you guys finish. The descriptions and analogies help the info stick. I’m always going to remember milkshakes vs balloons of acid for hyphemas and sickle cell.
Wonderful work! Thank you
As a new ophthalmology resident, I want to thank you so much about your hard work. I listen to the podcasts mainly during my commutes. But sometimes, I even sit down to take notes while playing these podcasts. Great education! Thank you so much for your hard work?
