COLOR ATLAS & SYNOPSIS OF CLINICAL OPHTHALMOLOGY Wills Eye Institut e Pediatric Ophthalmology PDF download I set out to prepare for the oral examination, writing a book
was not what I had in mind. Actually, I set out looking for a manual, like I
had on just about every assignment I’d been given over the past two decades.
In the rare cases where there was no S.O.P. (standard operating procedure),
I’d had to write them. So naturally, when I could not locate a suitable study
guide, I set about creating one. Little did I know, with encouragement from
some close colleagues, it would culminate in this volume; think of it as an
oral test prep S.O.P.

COLOR ATLAS & SYNOPSIS OF CLINICAL OPHTHALMOLOGY Wills Eye Institut e Pediatric Ophthalmology PDF download a certain sense, you could say I began writing this book 20 years
ago when I first enlisted in the United States Air Force (and later moved to
the United Stated Army with its greater opportunities in medicine). There I
first learned the concepts of preparation and planning. I learned the value of
regimentation and repetition, and saw first-hand how enormous challenges
could be conquered with commitment, cooperation, planning, and good old
fashioned hard work.

COLOR ATLAS & SYNOPSIS OF CLINICAL OPHTHALMOLOGY Wills Eye Institut e Pediatric Ophthalmology PDF download I also learned that hard work alone is sometimes  not enough. In the Army we needed each other, and we relied on those who  came before us to leave roadmaps and other indicators of how best to succeed in the most grueling circumstances at the time, but when we arrived in Baghdad, the S.O.P’s literally saved my  life.

resident back home, but there are some similarities, and my military training
did help during medical school and on the wards as a resident.

Here again, it’s all about preparation and standardization. Think about presenting a
patient on the wards: CC, HPI, PMH, PSH, Allergies, Meds, FHx, SocHx,
PE, Labs, Assessment, and Plan. Think about writing orders. We all know
the acronym ADCVANDIMSL.

These are S.O.P’s for physicians. There is
so much information, so many variables, and the stakes are so high, that
nothing can be left to chance. The successful residents internalize these
S.O.P’s early and often. And now we come to yet another challenge, the oral
examination. Time for a new S.O.P.
