Evolving curricula, changing goals for graduates, and the necessary limitation in exposure to all of medicine require that we answer this question. Evidence gained from more than 1,600 respondents provides the basis for a clear idea of what these required performances in ophthalmology should be, ie, what all graduating medical students should know or be able to do.
