Howdy folks-- I am at a small state MD school, and we have no ophthalmology program. I am currently a second year, and we have the option of doing an away research rotation at another school at the beginning of our third year (we push psych to our 4th year). My question is this: if I am seriously interested in ops (and I am), will an away research rotation at another med school be worth the hassle? I am in the top quartile of my class, and I believe my board scores will be high (my shelf scores have all been ~90th percentile). I did research over the summer in neuroscience (developing eyeballs), but it was basic science/bench research type stuff. Also, any tips ya'll might have for setting up such a rotation would be appreciated.
