To assist us in advocating for you, we have a pressing task that requires us to ascertain the number of total Clinical Full Time  Equivalents (CFTE) of neuro-ophthalmologists that we have in the United States.  We can only do this with your assistance, this one should be easy for you.  Please answer the following questions. It will take you no more than 5 minutes.  We need you to include your name (there should be nothing confidential here) as we will annoy those who have not responded, as for us to be effective, we need everyone’s information. 

We also are asking if your CFTE in neuro-ophthalmology has changed over time.  

Remember in answering these, that we ultimately want only your CLINICAL time in NEURO-OPHTHALMOLOGY, unless stated otherwise.  If you do pediatric ophthalmology, orbit, glaucoma, general neurology, etc., do not include that time.  We realize that sometimes the separation between two subspecialties that you practice is not necessarily clear; we only want your best estimate. 

We are expressing activity in half days per week. To be clear, someone who spends ten half days in clinical neuro-ophthalmology is 100% Clinical Full Time Equivalents (CFTE). Someone who spends 5 half days in clinical NO, and 5 in research NO, is 0.5 CFTE. If you are seeing mixed patients between related fields in a single session, such as in a full day mixing MS patients and neuro-ophthalmology patients, please make sure not to count the same time twice, allocate the fractional time to each discipline as best you can.

If you have questions on how to respond, you may email Larry Frohman at frohman@rutgers.edu.
