The Ophthalmology Residency Program is one of the best and is the largest in the U.S. Every year, 36 trainees gain outstanding and rigorous clinical experience as a result of high surgery volume and clinical pathology. We accept nine residents each year. We have an integrated internship program that allows our PGY1s to have a broad clinical experience that is applicable to their future ophthalmologic practice.
