Education Objectives:
Clinical decision formulation-we will work with students to improve their hierarchy of decision making (ie. how often to follow
     up with a neovascular glaucoma patient vs. a LTG (Raynaud's induced glaucoma patient). 
2.  Clinical procedural enhancement (students will be using their spud, Alger brush and punctal plug skillset regularly).
     We utilize our scope of care fully.  Our students can expect to be applying their skill set learned in their procedural
3.  Evidence based medicine--students will be expected to apply the most recent studies in their decision making process
     (i.e. PEDIG 1 and PEDIG 2 studies and how they relate to amblyopia treatment.

Our educational objectives are to train our students to be well versed in all facets of eye care.  From pediatrics to
geriatrics each student will receive the quality time needed to formulate correct decision making.  We expect our students
to come in with a solid educational foundation to support our objectives.
