HEI Welcomes UT Medical Students for Annual "Student Day" Event

Every spring, the UT Hamilton Eye Institute opens its clinics to the entire second-year class of UT medical students. This year's "Student Day" took place on January 31. The event is organized annually by William R. Morris, MD, associate professor of Ophthalmology. It serves as part of Dr. Stephanie Connelly's course "Doctoring: Recognizing Signs and Symptoms."

Following an introductory lecture, students separated into groups of four or five each, joining ophthalmologists in examination rooms to receive instruction in ophthalmic evaluation technologies and techniques. Many UT and regional private ophthalmologists provided instruction for HEI Student Day, as well as several ophthalmology residents. More than 165 students participated in this year's event.
