MULTIPHASIC PHACOEMULSIFICATION DIDACTIC COURSE
A two-day immersive event for residents from UW and regional peer institutions is hosted annually by the department. During the Friday didactic sessions, first-year residents learn the basics of phacoemulsification, while second- and third-year residents participate in advanced sessions that emphasize complications, style and nuances of cataract surgery. Residents practice basic and advanced cataract skills in the Saturday morning wet laboratory.
