Iowa Glaucoma Curriculum

IowaGlaucomaCurriculumsI wanted to let you know about a new website that I have built. The site is the Iowa Glaucoma Curriculum. It is aimed at residents who want an image-heavy introduction to glaucoma. The curriculum consists of 50 lectures that It break glaucoma into fifty bite-sized pieces averaging 14 minutes in length (range 4 to 37 minutes). In total the curriculum is just under 12 hours long.

It is highly visual with >900 images and >90 movie clips.

The address is: http://curriculum.iowaglaucoma.org/

The development of the new site explains – in part - the lack of new material for gonioscopy.org.
