    Top 5 things candidates should look for in a residency

    Editor’s Note: Welcome to “Eye Catching: Let's Chat,” a blog series featuring contributions from members of the ophthalmic community. These blogs are an opportunity for ophthalmic bloggers to engage with readers with about a topic that is top of mind, whether it is practice management, experiences with patients, the industry, medicine in general, or healthcare reform. The series continues with this blog by Joshua Mali, MD, a vitreoretinal surgeon at The Eye Associates, a private multispecialty ophthalmology practice in Sarasota, FL. The views expressed in these blogs are those of their respective contributors and do not represent the views of Ophthalmology Times or UBM Medica.

    As residency and fellowship interviews for ophthalmology and sub-specialty programs kick into high gear this season, I thought I would share my viewpoint on this matter. I was recently invited by my alma mater vitreoretinal surgical fellowship at Albany Medical College/Retina Consultants, PLLC in Albany, New York, to participate in their interview process and evaluate candidates for the retina fellowship program. It was truly an honor for me to be a part of the decision-making process and I felt motivated to share my experience as now I have been on both sides of the table: applicant and now interviewer. In addition, my wife Yasmin is currently applying for a pediatric ophthalmology fellowship position so I had extra inspiration to write this article.
