Research Opportunities

The department faculty is involved in a variety of clinical and basic science research projects. Residents participate in research throughout their residency. Each year they develop and pursue an investigative research project (experimental or clinical) in conjunction with a faculty member of their choice. The results of this research are presented at our annual Ophthalmology Research Day held each June. Residents are sponsored to attend ARVO, AAO, or comparable major research meetings to present their work.
