Our Ophthalmology Residency Training Program celebrates its fourth year of a 2-week off-site rotation for senior residents to Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital in New Delhi, India. Since its establishment in 2015, 14 residents have participated in the multi-dimensional experience that involves extracapsular cataract surgical training, tailored clinical exposure to subspecialty clinics in ophthalmology, patient screening in a rural outreach facility, educational conferences and exchanges, and cultural immersion.
Beginning in January 2019, three students—one postdoctoral and two pre-doctoral—engaged in the first integrated training program of Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences (DOVS) that is dedicated to the visual sciences.
