Developing a broad view of the world of ophthalmology is an important component of residency training. To that end, our program has been open to innovative opportunities for learning. In addition to the extensive time and support provided for Queen’s residents to attend courses outside of Kingston, our residents have the opportunity to organize elective blocks at other institutions. These are an opportunity to expand horizons, or investigate future fellowship locations. We also offer regular formalized opportunities to work in developing nations, such as Ghana and Jamaica, under the supervision of Queen’s attending physicians.
