The Stanford University Ophthalmology Residency Program aims to train ophthalmology residents who are well prepared to pursue specialty training in fellowship and will be the next generation of leaders and practitioners in our field in the prevention and treatment of vision loss, utilizing the spectrum of resources available through the Department, School of Medicine, and broader University. Our ultimate goal is to develop leaders in research and innovation within the discipline of Ophthalmology who will pursue professional and personal growth in an environment that fosters scientific discovery, educational innovation and global service.
1. To provide outstanding clinical training in diverse patient populations across multiple hospitals and clinical settings
2. To train residents in all ophthalmic subspecialties, providing a solid foundation for fellowship training and subsequently to become leaders in their fields
3. To foster life-long interest in teaching and interscholastic collaboration and provide diverse opportunities for research and technical innovation
4. To enable residents to participate in and prepare them to lead global ophthalmology initiatives
We aim to prepare residents to succeed, whatever their future path as an ophthalmologist.
