The Department of Ophthalmology conducts an accredited three-year residency program. Seven residents begin training each July. The full breadth of ophthalmology training is offered, including experience in general ophthalmology and the ophthalmic subspecialties of cornea and external ocular disease, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, ophthalmic anesthesiology, orbital and ophthalmic plastic surgery, pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, retinal disease, ophthalmic genetics, ophthalmic oncology, ophthalmic pathology and vision science.

The ophthalmology residency curriculum is multifaceted, including clinical rotations at five major medical centers, didactic education in the classroom, surgery training and research experience. Certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology is a natural objective of the program.
