15 trainees complete RANZCO Eye Anatomy Exam

Once accepted into the RANZCO Ophthalmology Trainee program, one of the first exams that trainees face is Anatomy (Written and OSPE). The 2021 Anatomy exam was held on 6 March and included trainees from across Australia and New Zealand.

This year, 10 trainees were female and 5 were male.

The anatomy exam is in two parts; a written component followed by a practical component (OSPE). 2021 is the second year that the practical component has been held virtually, undertaken online with trainees presented with high resolution images instead of models.

One administrative challenge in delivering the exam is that trainees are in multiple locations. This year the exam was run concurrently in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney and also in New Zealand with exam sites in Auckland and Christchurch.

Exam feedback has been positive. The exams are now being marked by RANZCO examiners and trainees should know their results in about six weeks.
