Event Summary: 2020-21 University of Calgary Ophthalmology Meet-and-Greet

Dec 20, 2020 | 2 min

The University of Calgary Ophthalmology program held a series of two meet-and-greet sessions on December 12th and 13th. These events were hosted by a number of residents and featured a prepared presentation about the program and a live video tour of the Eye Clinic at Rockyview Hospital and the nearby resident spaces. This was followed by breakout rooms where a small group of attendees were paired up with a resident. This allowed for informal discussions about the program, ophthalmology, and life in Calgary. Here are some takeaways from the presentation:

In case you weren’t able to attend, the residents have informed us that they’d be willing to meet with students outside of these dedicated sessions as well.
