The Future of Medicine is at Ohio State

Thank you for your interest in The Ohio State University Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences Residency Program. Our goal is to train future leaders in ophthalmology. The program offers strong didactics, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, subspecialty training in all areas of ophthalmology, research opportunities in all three years of residency training, and faculty covering all subspecialties at all residency clinic sites. The program meets all the requirements from the American Board of Ophthalmology and is accredited by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education.

Our faculty are committed to excellence in the clinical training of ophthalmology residents. Primary surgical and patient management responsibilities reside in the resident class, as opposed to physicians in fellowship, and subspecialty consultation is available immediately from the faculty on-site. We believe this arrangement enhances the educational process, provides immediate feedback on management decisions, and promotes continuity and high-quality patient care. Our graduates have been accepted to prominent clinical and research fellowships throughout the country.

Program Snapshot:
