Default Ophthalmology

Hi guys,

I have a question about how important ophthalmology is for CK. I don't really think it is stressed on too much in Uworld. If anyone has recently taken the exam, could you please provide me with an idea of how much it is tested? Is it enough to know central retinal vein occlusion, central retinal artery occlusion, hypertensive retinopathy, uveitis, endopthalmitis, catarct? Or do we need to prepare in more detail? How much is fundoscopy tested? Thanks in advance!

I don't think people can share too much details about the exam. ECFMG recently released an warning about sharing exam content on the internet On May 5, 2016.

Just study it and do your best

USMLE Takes Action Against Individuals Found To Have Engaged In Irregular Behavior

The USMLE Committee for Individualized Review (CIR) meets periodically throughout the year to review cases involving allegations of irregular behavior by applicants and/or examinees.

At its recent meetings, the CIR considered multiple cases involving the following:

- falsifying information, including the creation of falsified score reports
- seeking to obtain unauthorized access to examination materials
- communicating about specific test items, cases, and/or answers with other examinees
- providing unauthorized access to examination content on the internet
- applying for and/or attempting to take an examination when ineligible
- making notes on test day on something other than materials provided
- failure to follow test center instructions, including typing past the ‘End Patient Note’ announcement in Step 2 Clinical Skills


Actions taken by the CIR at its recent meetings included:


- annotating individual USMLE records with a finding of irregular behavior
- barring access to USMLE for periods up to 3 years
- reporting the finding of irregular behavior to the disciplinary data bank (Physician Data Center [PDC]) at the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB). State medical boards routinely query this data bank as part of their licensing processes
- canceling the examinee’s score because the validity of a passing level score is in question
