Ophthalmology Morning Report

Case Reports

At the University of Colorado School of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology, we hold Morning Report on Wednesdays and Grand Rounds on Fridays.  Morning Report consists of residents presenting classic, complex, and interesting cases in ophthalmology.  These cases are discussed amongst faculty members on diagnosis and management.  Grand Rounds consists of presentations by visiting clinicians and researchers and our faculty, fellows, and residents on more difficult cases to the entire Ophthalmology department.

This website is an expanding educational resource of our case presentations for medical students, residents, and physicians.  These cases that have been presented at the University of Colorado School of Medicine are organized by sub-specialty.  All cases have been reviewed by an attending on our faculty for content.  These cases are intended for educational purposes, and not patient information. Please review the disclaimers below.
