An Ophthalmology education podcast for OKAP and board review, with additional interview and "boot camp" episodes! Tune in weekly with your hosts Ben Young and Andrew Pouw, a Kellogg Eye Center retina fellow, and a University of Iowa glaucoma faculty, as we review high yield topics in the time it takes to commute.
Medical Malpractice with Dr Jonathan Trobe
Learn what you need to know to prevent and prepare for medical malpractice lawsuits, and what it's like to be on the other side as an expert witness with Dr Jonathan Trobe, head of neuro-ophthalmology at the Kellogg Eye Center at the University of Michigan, as well as frequent expert witness in medico-legal cases.
Residency/Fellowship Rank List Reflections
For our 100th episode, we get Amanda, Andrew and Ben together to reflect on their residency and fellowship training to discuss what they thought was important and what they think is actually important in training and for their rank list.
These thoughts are our own, and do not reflect the opinions of any institution we have trained or worked at. Thank you to all of our supporters and listeners on the way to episode 100!
Amanda Redfern did her residency at Yale, her neuro-ophthalmology fellowship at the Moran Eye Center at the University of Utah, and is now faculty doing both neuro-ophthalmology and comprehensive ophthalmology at the Casey Eye Institute at OHSU.
Andrew Pouw did his residency at Yale, his glaucoma fellowship at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins University, and is now faculty at the University of Iowa.
Ben Young did his residency at Yale, is currently doing his vitreoretinal surgery fellowship at the Kellogg Eye Center at the University of Michigan, and is signed to join the faculty at the Casey Eye Institute at OHSU.
Spot of Darkness with Nikhil Bommakanti
This week, we explore a mystery case of missing vision presented by the excellent University of Michigan resident, Nikhil Bommakanti.
Also, if you're a medical retina, surgical retina, or pediatric ophthalmology fellow, we are very interested in your thoughts and attitudes towards retinopathy of prematurity. It would be a huge help if you take the brief survey below:
And here's a link to the paper referenced in the episode (warning: spoilers for the final diagnosis!): https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/3055391/
Corneal Transplants: Selection Criteria
After a hiatus, we're back this week to talk about corneal grafts, starting with selection criteria. Learn what disqualifies a donor cornea from being a transplant candidate, the preservation times and transport media, and the basics of the Cornea Donor Study.
Getting out of Neuro-ophth Trouble with Dr. Jonathan Trobe
In this episode, we present four neuro-ophth cases to Dr. Jonathan Trobe, division head of Neuro-Ophthalmology at the Kellogg Eye Center, where he dissects them to find the seemingly small details that can get us and our patients into big trouble if missed. Join along in his case analysis, and see if you can find where mistakes were made so you can avoid them yourself!
Dr. Trobe went to Harvard Medical School, did his residency at Wills Eye, a neuro-ophth fellowship at Bascom Palmer, then a full neurology residency at the University of Miami. He's also served in the US Air Force, and is a tireless supporter of medical education, having won the teaching award at the University of Michigan countless times.
Learn the fundamentals of vitreous composition and anatomy; important facts to know for beginning trainees, and higher level facts to memorize for senior trainees studying for boards.
The panel for applying for residency was so helpful for a medical student like me!! The episodes are engaging and educational even for a beginning trainee.
Amazing ophtho podcast
This is a hilarious, informative podcast that is a fun way to learn and review ophthalmology for med students and trainees. Ben and his colleagues provide knowledgeable insight into textbook material as well as some valuable clinical tips and tricks. I also love that they bring in ophthalmologists and ideas from a diverse set of backgrounds.
Wonderful review! Thanks!
