To measure the acceptance and the educational benefit of the Eyesi® Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscope (EBIO) as substantial aid in the Ophthalmology Curriculum in the Goethe University Hospital.
We implemented EBIO in the Ophthalmology Curriculum in our University Hospital. Students (n=211) were asked to perform the conventional training with regular examination on each other plus training in the EBIO. At the end, they were asked to fill a questionnaire focussing on the following questions.<br /> We asked them 1. In which year of your medical school are you ? 2. Did you benefit from conventional training ? 3. Did you benefit from EBIO training ? 4. How realistic is this simulator (EBIO) ? 5. Are you considering specializing in ophthalmology? 6. Would you consider such a training to be relevant for your profession in future. 7. If yes : when and for how long ?
The students appreciated the training setup with EBIO and also improved their skills. Around 80% of students were in the 4th year, 10% in the 5th and 10% in the 3rd year (1); 60 % said that they could benefit from conventional training (2); almost 95% got benefit in EBIO training (3); 100% found EBIO realistic as much as real world training (4); 15 % wanted to do specialization in ophthalmology (5); 80 % considered the training to be relevant for their future profession no matter what subspecialty. (6); 2 hours per day for at least one week (7).
The evaluation provides evidence that EBIO training is efficient to improve ophthalmoscopy skills. Our study also indicates that this training is important not only for ophthalmologists.<br /> REFRENCES:<br /> 1.
