Alumnus Spotlight: David S. Boyer, MD – Retina Vitreous Associates (RVA)

 
Boyer

  1. How would you describe your residency experience at LAC+USC?
  2. My residency experience was absolutely outstanding. I was surrounded by extremely bright people all of the time that constantly challenged and pushed me to be better. I had no idea exactly how beneficial the program was going to be until after I graduated. The training I received at LAC+USC Medical Center was truly one of a kind.

  3. What were your greatest takeaways from the program?
  4. I didn’t realize how much I learned until I was finished with the program. I felt like the program not only prepared me for my retina fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital, but also gave me an extremely solid foundation that I was able to use to start my career in ophthalmology. I received a truly phenomenal education and learned from the best of the best.

  5. Why did you decide to get into ophthalmology?
  6. I always loved the field of medicine. Ophthalmology and more specifically the retina, peaked my interest because of the various conditions that can affect it, such as diabetes, hypertension and cancer. A healthy retina is necessary for good vision. Changes to retinal blood vessels can be an early symptom of diabetes. High blood pressure can cause damage to the blood vessels in your eye, and can lead to hypertensive retinopathy.

  7. What is it about USC Roski that enabled you to be successful?
  8. The training was excellent, and the camaraderie was life-changing. We learned how to be completely well-versed in all ophthalmic subspecialties, and I found that I had more experience going into my fellowship because of it. We were prepared to take one any challenge that came our way, and we weren’t afraid to think out of the box and try something new. I valued each and every experience.

  9. Do you have any words of wisdom for incoming residents?
  10. Make yourself available to all of your wonderful teachers and utilize them to their fullest extent. Learn as much as you can and take it all in. You can never stop learning, no matter how much you think you might know. Some of the greatest retina physicians I know started as USC ophthalmology residents. This is a true testament to the overall quality and reputation of our program.
