Taking Surgical Education to the Next Level at the Wilmer Eye Institute


>>The Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute is a leader in ophthalmic care and has trained generations of surgical innovators through the time honored
surgical education model of see one, do one, teach one. As operating room technology
has evolved rapidly in recent years, so, too, have the challenges
of educating surgeons. We created the center of excellence for ophthalmic surgical
education and training to utilize advances in technology to improve the learning experience for Wilmer residents and fellows. And for practicing surgeons
who come here to train. Our one of a kind center combines several extraordinary
Johns Hopkins resources. We have a state of the art web lab which we call our operating
room of the future featuring actual OR microscopes with high-definition 3D projection and recording capacity. We also have a revolutionary
surgical stimulator with tactile feedback. Another of the center’s key elements is an innovation and demonstration lab where Wilmer surgeons,
engineers and industry partners collaborate to rapidly
advance surgical techniques and technology. Novice as well as practicing surgeons will reach new levels of surgical prowess in this unique environment
trained by world renowned surgical educators. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and change the way the world sees, for the better. We invite you to join us.
