Host: Roy Levit, MD
Guest: Paul Tornambe, MD
Dr. Roy Levit welcomes Dr. Paul Tornambe to The Revealing Retina. Dr. Tornambe is in private practice in the San Diego/La Jolla area, and has written over a dozen peer reviewed papers on vitreo retinal disease. He lectures worldwide and is a Journal Referee for the AJO, Archives of Ophthalmology, Retina, British Journal of Ophthalmology, and the German Journal of Ophthalmology. He is a past president of the American Society of Retina Specialists. Dr. Tornambe will discuss the fact that because most residents eventually become board certified, the overall certification rate for the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) is not a discriminating educational outcome measure. He will talk about resident performance from program match to certification.
