CCOR Post-residency Guidebook
A Canadian Ophthalmology Resident’s guide to preparing for life after residency. Learn about the career in general vs subspecialty ophthalmology practice, compare different subspecialties, and how to apply for fellowship. Insights shared are a compilation of previous CCOR fellowship talks and tips from a recent survey of graduating residents.
As a team of ophthalmologists, ophthalmology residents, and medical students at the University of Calgary, we are dedicated to exploring and developing simulation-based learning endeavours and 3D printing innovations in surgical ophthalmology.
Check out the latest simulation walkthrough videos below:
The EyeSi Simulator Walkthrough
In this project, we provide walkthrough videos of the levels of the VR Magic EyeSi® Surgical simulator. A staple in many ophthalmology training programs, the EyeSi® system provides virtual modules to practice surgical skills in cataract surgery. However, there are no specific walkthroughs and tips provided by the simulator in completing each individual level. Hence our library of over 100 videos on Youtube® include individualized advice and narration on video walkthroughs on how we approached each level, and our final scoring as well. We hope these videos help ophthalmology residents in completing all the levels in the EyeSi® cataract simulator, that will translate directly into real-life operating room success!
EyeSi Vitreoretinal Simulator Walkthrough
In this project, we provide walkthrough videos of the levels of the VR Magic EyeSi® Surgical simulator for the Vitreoretinal module. A staple in many ophthalmology training programs, the EyeSi® system provides virtual modules to practice surgical skills in cataract surgery and vitreoretinal surgery. However, there are no specific walkthroughs and tips provided by the simulator in completing each individual level. Hence our library of over 100 videos on Youtube® include individualized advice and narration on video walkthroughs on how we approached each level, and our final scoring as well.

Foundations of physician wellness (on-demand)
Learn core concepts and a framework to approach physician wellness
ABOUT THIS COURSE
Physician health and wellness is a critical issue that affects all members of a care team, patients and the overall effectiveness of the health system. Organizational factors such as challenging workloads, demanding learning and practice standards, rigid medical culture and complex practice environments all put physicians at a higher risk of experiencing personal and professional dissatisfaction, depression, burnout and suicide. To address these challenges, we must first understand the scope of the problem, including the individual and system drivers of burnout.
This self-led online course is designed for students, medical residents and physicians at all career stages. In this interactive course, you’ll review key concepts of physician wellness, explore organizational factors that drive burnout and review evidence-based findings on the interventions shown to protect against burnout and foster well-being.
EXPECT TO LEARN HOW TO:
- explain the impact of physician burnout in Canada using an evidence-based supporting framework;
- discuss the impact of stigma and medical culture on physician wellness;
- describe the factors that affect professional fulfillment;
- discuss how equity, diversity and inclusion, leadership and professional satisfaction can affect burnout; and
- identify specific strategies to reduce the prevalence of burnout in your learning or work environment.
