Trainee's Choice

Training in ophthalmology is in a state of flux, with some changes forced through by the COVID-19 pandemic, while others are products of pure innovation. In this collection, a selection of manuscripts is chosen that cover issues pertinent to training, from technical aspects such as managing complications and the ever-increasing prominence of simulation, to non-technical areas such as non-technical skills in theatre, trainee perspectives on the impact of the pandemic, and more generally, on returning to surgical training after an extended break. Equality, diversity and inclusiveness in training are also covered, as are the medico-legal implications of trainee operating; especially relevant in the context of the growing importance of shared decision making.
