The UPMC Eye Center at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology, offers a three year residency training program in ophthalmology.

The overall mission of the program is to train future ophthalmologists to excel in all aspects of ophthalmology.

The training program consists of clinical rotations, academic conferences, research and other scholarly activities. Residents are heavily involved in teaching each other as well as the medical students of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Residents have the opportunity to participate in service activities locally and abroad.

On completion of the program all residents are fully qualified to practice clinical ophthalmology independently. In addition they are prepared to pursue fellowship training in the specialty of their choice if they wish to do so. Many of our graduates pursue careers in academia and other leadership positions in our field.
