Each year the program matches six residents through the SFMatch program.While the typical successful applicant to our program has demonstrated excellence in undergraduate training and medical school there are no hard criteria or cut-offs used in the resident selection process. The program values cultural diversity and has accepted candidates from all parts of the United States and abroad. The program values the broad range of experiences that our residents bring to the program. Many of our residents have pursued careers in ophthalmology after first having been in other fields in and out of medicine.
