Nov 22, 2020 | 2 min

The University of Alberta’s Department of Ophthalmology held their CaRMS information session on November 5th for medical students in clerkship interested in Ophthalmology. There was a prepared presentation and Q&A with the program director, Dr. Carlos Solarte, and the chief resident, Dr. Maya Tong. After the presentation, participants were split into breakout and got to spend 5-10 minutes with 1-2 residents as they rotated throughout various breakout rooms. This allowed for more casual conversations amongst attendees and the residents.

A few takeaways from the discussion:

In case you could not attend this session or had additional questions, students are invited to reach out to the UofA PGY-1’s Rahul Moorjani (moorjani@ualberta.ca) and Daisy Liu (jliu26@ualberta.ca)!
