We offer observerships in the Department of Ophthalmology to Undergraduate medical students in their first 2 years of medical school.
The goal of this program is to provide Queen's medical students in their first and second years of medical school an opportunity to explore ophthalmology, by observing the day-to-day practice of an ophthalmologist for a day or a week. Availability of these observerships may be limited.
Observerships in the Department can be arranged by a couple of different approaches:
• Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Medical Education - formal week long observerships organized in the spring.
• On an ad hoc basis, please contact the appropriate Queen's Ophthalmologist directly to determine their availability. Once you have determined which area of Ophthalmology you are most interested in learning more about, please contact the appropriate clinician (listed below).
