On this episode of NeuroOp Guru, Andy Lee, MD, and Elizabeth Fortin, MD, discuss factors affecting ophthalmology residents' choice to not pursue neuro-ophthalmology fellowship training.

Reasons listed via survey responses:

  • Salary
  • Lack of jobs
  • No surgery
  • No intraocular surgery
  • Perceived difficulty of the field
  • Type of patients seen
  • Stronger interest in another field
  • Lack of participation in SF match
  • Jobs primarily in academic departments

Lee and Fortin break down why they believe these reasons aren't true, while highlighting the parts of neuro-ophthalmology that they are most passionate about.
