This from the American Board of Ophthalmology---

The PG-1 year must be comprised of training in which the resident is primarily responsible for patient care in fields such as internal medicine, neurology, pediatrics, surgery, family practice, or emergency medicine. As a minimum, six months of this year must consist of a broad experience in direct patient care.

How does this work, do certain Neurology, Peds, FP, and EM programs accept you with the understanding that you will only be there one year?

Thanks.

What does this part mean?

It means you can only do up to six months of radiology, nuclear medicine, pathology, research, and other such electives- not that many programs will let you do that anyway.
