nice people
Program Advantages
Good fellowship opportunities, good surgical numbers, very well rounded program, good research options, great faculty
Great surgical volume esp Peds (80-100 muscle cases), Strong faculty, good fellowship placement, very strong didactics
Good clinical experience. Moving to brand new facility off medical campus with ENT in near future. New Columbus VA with more surgical volume.
Very, very nice attendings and residents. This program really took me by surprise. Nice eye clinic on the top floor of a new surgical sub building
Larger program, great facilities, nice staff
Very nice group of attendings. Nice new clinic.
All new facilities (soon to be stand-alone?), 180-200 phacos, 2 VAs, updated technology, lasik and specialty lens training, new ocular path hired ~6 months ago, strong faculty, fellowship match good, research support ++, lenses+indirect provided, internat

strong clinical training, surgical numbers
Program Disadvantages
Columbus
VA in Dayton, 1st year consult service, no plastics 1st year
Sent to Dayton for multiple months. Most residents do not do fellowship.
Fellowship match a little weak, but their goal is to train good comprehensive ophthalmologists
Drive to Dayton VA
Lots of driving to disparate sites, residents and fellows seemed a little weak and all from the midwest.
