The "near-peer" resource for book, video, podcast and mobile app recommendations for medical students who plan to match into ophthalmology.


Resource recommendations were generated by querying ophthalmology residents,  recently-matched medical students, and faculty. 



About resources, recommendation, passion for ophthalmology, and preparing to embark upon a life in the field.

While this website in no way represents a professional recommendation of resources, and in fact enters into a controversial discussion as to with which among many resource medical students should be engaged (including the perspective that we should simply focus on non-ophthalmologic aspects of medicine), I have appreciated the input of many faculty and residents in the making of this website, including: Dr. Yanni Paulus, Dr. Shahzad Mian, Dr. Jonathan Trobe, Dr. David Zacks, Dr. Ariane Kaplan, Dr. David Goldman, Dr. Kira Segal, Dr. Tapan Patel, and Dr. Olivia Killeen.
