Curriculum: Surgery and On Call

Surgical Volume

Residents receive substantial experience in: cataract procedures, strabismus surgeries, corneal surgeries, glaucoma lasers, glaucoma filters, vitreoretinal surgeries, retinal lasers, oculoplastics procedures, and open globe repairs. Residency graduates are fully equipped to begin a career in general ophthalmology or to pursue further fellowship training.

Call Schedule

Junior residents cover the emergency room on a night-float system. In addition, junior residents work weekend day shifts from 8 am - 6 pm.

Intermediate residents take call from home on some of their rotations. They also work short evening shifts in the emergency room during the first two blocks, which allows time for seniors to teach junior residents.

Senior residents take back-up call from home.
