It's not all about work. At Iowa you meet some great people and forge life-long relationships with your colleagues.
Second Year Residents celebrate with an "End of First Call" retreat in late summer.
Each Fall we attend a Phacoemulsification course in Madison; at the end of the day, there is always time to relax and have some fun.
At the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting, the Iowa Eye Alumni reception gives current residents a change to network with alumni of the program.
There are many other opportunities to relax and have some fun. Among the many regularly scheduled events are a monthly "Breakfast with the Head" during the first year, as well as the Annual Iowa Eye Association social events which include a golf tournament. Attending Hawkeye football games at Kinnick Stadium directly across the street from UIHC is always a blast. Our annual graduation celebration is held in Kinnick stadium's luxurious press box.
