From the Residency Program Director
At the University of Michigan Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, we believe that a welcoming environment is an important aspect of your educational experience. As a resident at Michigan, you will work with distinguished faculty members who take a deep interest in your training and your long-term goals.
Throughout this web site, you will see the scope and breadth of the program. I hope you also will glean a sense of community that is integral to the Department. Faculty and residents are supportive of each other and take a team approach to providing the best possible care for our patients.
Perhaps most importantly, our program, with its emphasis on both clinical and research aspects of ophthalmology, will prepare you fully for future professional endeavors. Our residents have a strong tradition of excellence in pursuing specialty training at prestigious institutions, establishing thriving clinical practices, and joining the faculty at academic institutions across the nation.
The strengths of our program are further enhanced by our position within a premier medical school and the vibrant Ann Arbor community. I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to the University of Michigan ophthalmology residency training program.
