Medical Students


For medical students at the Indiana University School of Medicine, ophthalmology is part of the surgical rotation along with general surgery and anesthesia. 

Students who are  interested in pursuing ophthalmology may select it as a surgical subspecialty rotation in the  third year  of medical school.  And, through prior arrangement with a faculty member, a student can also sign up for an ophthalmology rotation focused on a clinical subspecialty or on a research project.

Educational Resources for Medical Students

EDACTIC: Online, interactive ophthalmic cases

The IU Department of Ophthalmology has developed an online, interactive teaching resource for medical students interested in increasing their knowledge of ophthalmic diseases and conditions commonly encountered by the non-ophthalmologist physician.  These files are available for use thanks to the IU Department of Radiology who is housing them on their server.

Clicking on "All Records" provides a list of available cases.

Medical students are encouraged to examine these online, learn-at-your-own-pace/place interactive cases.
