What's in your toolbox to accomplish what you need to do all your tricks of the trade?  Some of us have done MSICS surgery with a razor blade and blade breaker or a bunsen burner!  

At the MSICS Classroom, we hope to help each of you equip your toolbox with the right tools, right techniques and the best practices for becoming an efficient, quality surgeon in practically any situation that you are in.  This certainly is a challenge that is worthy of study and practice.

The community is full of many incredible resources in terms of ophthalmologists from all over the world who have extensive knowledge and practical expertise.  This is likely the most valuable asset in our toolbox that we hope to share.
