Bascom Palmer takes top honors in Ophthalmology Times Best Programs SurveyAfter a seven-year hiatus, Ophthalmology Times resumed its Best Programs Survey this fall. While a few new names popped up on the list, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, remained at the top of the Best Overall Program category, followed again by the Wilmer Eye Institute at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore. Number three in the overall list has a new name with Dean McGee Eye Institute at the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City—the first time that institute has appeared in the top category since the survey’s inception 20 years ago.
