ASCRS completes second annual Clinical Survey; develops educational gaps to address in 2015 More than 1,500 members provided information on clinical opinions and practice patterns to drive the future of ASCRS education Survey overview The second annual ASCRS Clinical Survey was performed both at the ASCRS•ASOA Symposium & Congress in Boston and via electronic follow-up surveys to the ASCRS membership. More than 1,500 physicians responded to this survey, which included 134 questions that created 267 unique measurable data elements. Survey questions were developed and reviewed with the ASCRS Clinical Committees and validated by a social science statistician. 50.2% of the respondents were from the United States, while 49.8% were from outside the United States. Additionally, 17% of respondents were young ophthalmologists, either a resident, fellow, or within 5 years of practice, who were asked another set of questions on their experiences to date. The survey asked ASCRS members key questions relating to current issues they face on a regular basis. With more than 1,500 responses, a significant percentage of the membership was represented and the results were reviewed and interpreted by the ASCRS Clinical Committees. Proficiencies and deficiencies were assessed to develop educational objectives and gaps for future ASCRS programming.
