The Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Iowa has a unique, superlative teaching program. Morning rounds are held Monday through Thursday during the week from 8:00 to 8:45 a.m. These are attended by all faculty, fellows, and residents and consist of patient presentations, seminars, and interesting discussions. There are also afternoon conferences in pathology, neuro-ophthalmology, and retina on a weekly basis. Every Friday morning during the academic year faculty members present a two-hour lecture covering sections of the Basic and Clinical Sciences course subject material.
