The American Board of Ophthalmology said: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.
I don't doubt it, but the board can be a little testy. Rather than get caught up in a battle over wording after the fact, I'd recommend clarifying that it's OK that ALL the months of your internship can come from peds and not just one or two. In other words, I'd want to be sure that the statement you quoted wasn't intended for those doing a transitional year.Andrew_Doan said:mdkurt, that was taken directly from the board's website.
