000 Welcome to OphthoCast

Welcome to the OphthoCast, the audio podcast channel dedicated to ophthalmology.

With today on 14th December 2015, we launch a series of audio interactions in the field of ophthalmology, targeted at students and residents alike. In due course we also plan to keep you abreast with the latest advancements in this field.
We will not call them classes or lectures for the reason that it will boring. An earnest attempt will be made to keep it interesting and simple.

We are starting with basic topics which if grasped at an early stage will widen your understanding of the subject.

These audios are in no way a replacement to your standard textbooks. We strive to be factually correct but to err is human. Keep us posted if you disagree with anything that has been said in these recordings. We would be happy to make amendments with due credits.

with regards,

OphthoCast Team

Launch of OphthCast

Dear Readers,

We are planning to launch a podcast channel dedicated to Ophthalmology targeted at residents and medical students. The podcast channel will be on air soon. We plan to include a series of audio ‘talks’ on various topics ranging from basic to advanced.

We would like to state here that these are not replacement for your prescribed books, article etc but just a tool to understand concepts better.

We will try to keep things simple and easily palatable. We will also strive to include innovative topics which are not otherwise discussed elsewhere. Our references will be updated on this blog, however most of the talks will be based on basic demonstrations that you will be able to do yourself in your free time.

The talks will be available as audio links to mp3 files which will be downloadable and you can carry it around in any of your audio players including your car stereo.

With regards,

Happy eyeing

OphthoCast Team
