Statement of Educational Purpose
The objective of the Archives of Ophthalmology
is education: To inform its readers of progress, problems, and pertinent research
in the practice of ophthalmology through the publication of original contributions
and observations. A flexible curriculum of article topics is developed annually
by the journal's editorial board and is then supplemented throughout the year
with information gained from readers, authors, reviewers, and editors. The Archives of Ophthalmology Reader's Choice CME activity
allows readers, as adult learners, to determine their own educational needs
and to assist the editors in addressing their needs in future issues.
Readers of the Archives of Ophthalmology should
be able to attain the following educational objectives: (1) learn the latest
advances in the field of medical and surgical ophthalomology and apply this
information to their current practices; (2) acquire new information in the
laboratory sciences that is pertinent to the field of ophthalmology; and (3)
learn diagnostic and management skills through case scenarios and discussion
of current controversial issues.
