Abstract

Purpose: 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.

Methods: 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 ?

Results: 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).

Conclusions: 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.
