    I wanted to start a thread that lists ophthalmology rotation opportunities for medical students. If you have a good opportunity at your institution, then post the info. Considering the intense competition, it is helpful to complete rotations at programs you're interested in.

    Iowa has a nice program for visiting students. You can spend a month in any speciality or general clinic. There are formal didactics, attend morning rounds, and also present a patient.

    Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute also offers an organized and diverse experience. There are formal didactics and the month is organized so that the students rotate through all the speciality clinics: neuro-op, glaucoma, retina, oculoplastics, peds, uveitis, cornea, and general ophthalmology. This is a great rotation and opportunity to meet the residents and staff at Wilmer.

    Late 3rd year or start of 4th year. You want to do it early enough to have LORs from people who like you.
