The Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology (AUPO) has developed a series of recommendations to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic for the 2020-2021 ophthalmology match cycle. Our intention is to ensure a successful residency application process by focusing on 4 guiding principles: safety, equity, fairness, and transparency.  A summary of these recommendations is available as an editorial-in-press in Ophthalmology.  You can access the full text version and a downloadable PDF using the following link:
