Saint Louis University offers a three-year ophthalmology residency program with an opportunity for residents to explore a wide array of eye diseases while developing clinical and surgical skills. Residents are given every opportunity to become well–trained, proficient ophthalmologists both medically and surgically.
Saint Louis University also now has a joint program with internal medicine. Residents who match with us for ophthalmology residency, will complete a preliminary year at Saint Louis University that includes rotations in ophthalmology.
With full-time faculty providing a one-to-one ratio and state-of-the-art clinical facilities, residents gain exceptional experience in all subspecialties of ophthalmology, easily exceeding the minimum Association Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) procedure guidelines.
Our faculty encourage a friendly, teamwork approach to daily learning and clinical duties at Saint Louis University Eye Institute. Extensive didactic lectures provide more formal opportunities for discussion about common problems and difficult management issues. Many social events are also planned to help build lifelong friendships among the residents, faculty and staff.
