In recent years, there has been significant research done on the topic of Resident-as-Teacher. Medical students get much of their training from residents. RaT programs can improve resident attitudes and perceptions towards teaching as well as their teaching behavior (Hill et al., 2012). Studies suggest that longitudinal RaT workshops, where residents are given didactic training on teaching skills, can lead to an improvement in their own abilities as teachers (Berger et al., 2012). Studies also suggest that there are benefits to clinical skills workshops, where residents actively teach medical students examination techniques (Sorab, Benza, Patterson & Kelly, 2020). To our knowledge, the impact of longitudinal clinical skills workshops on residents' clinical teaching abilities in Ophthalmology is not yet known. This project aims to assess the impact of longitudinal Clinical Skills workshops on residents' own perceptions of their clinical teaching abilities, student perceptions of residents' teaching abilities, and students' clinical skills-over time
