Hi everyone -

Intern and future opthalmology resident here. I have an opportunity to do a month away from my program later this spring.

I'm looking for a month-long experience that:

1. has credibility (away residents have done it before and enjoyed it)
2. doesn't have to be related to ophtho (though it would awesome if it was).
3. is located somewhere in the US (unless you have a credible international experience that won't cost me an arm or a leg - I would LOVE to go abroad, but I am very low on cash!)

I'd be particularly interested in hearing from residents and interns who have already done away rotations somewhere, though if anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know!

Thank you!
