About This Program
Welcome to the University of California San Francisco Department of Ophthalmology. We train five residents per year in each of three residency years. The principal objective of our program is to train outstanding ophthalmologists with strong foundations in basic and clinical ophthalmic science. Our graduates are able to pursue career pathways in basic and clinical vision science, ophthalmic practice, and teaching. It is our intention to provide this training through a combination of excellent formal teaching sessions throughout residency, exposure to appropriate clinical cases at all levels, and ongoing close relationships between residents and an outstanding faculty. We teach critical, inquisitive, and innovative thinking, and we provide research opportunities to all interested residents. We hope to train the future leaders in ophthalmology.
