Abstract

Purpose: To describe an ophthalmology wet laboratory (OWL) curriculum for residents in training. Methods: Systematic literature review and selection of best practices for use in the OWL learning plan from a single academic ophthalmology program. Results: A pretest and posttest of cognitive skills, objective wet laboratory structured assessment of skill and technique, and summative global evaluation form were developed as part of a systematic OWL curriculum. Conclusion: The Iowa OWL curriculum may form the basis for successfully utilizing the wet laboratory to teach and assess aspects of resident surgical competence in cataract surgery.
