RESULTS:

A pretest and posttest of cognitive skills, objective wet laboratory structured assessment of skill and technique, and summative global evaluation form were developed as part of a systematic OWL curriculum.

CONCLUSION:

The Iowa OWL curriculum may form the basis for successfully utilizing the wet laboratory to teach and assess aspects of resident surgical competence in cataract surgery.
