About This Program
Mayo Clinic's Ophthalmology Residency training program aims to educate and inspire our resident colleagues within a stimulating environment to learn the science and art of ophthalmology.
Our integrated PGY 1-4 program provides an excellent foundation in clinical, surgical, and academic ophthalmology. Residency graduates are well-prepared to excel in comprehensive clinical practice or to pursue further subspecialty training and are positioned to contribute to the field of ophthalmology throughout their career.
Training within the Mayo Clinic Model of Care, residents will develop meaningful patient relationships while serving as the primary ophthalmologist for patients with a wide spectrum of medical and surgical ophthalmic conditions. Resident physicians have progressive clinical autonomy under the guidance of an accessible faculty of leaders in all specialties of ophthalmology.
The clinical and academic environment encourages intellectual curiosity with an abundance of cutting-edge research opportunities, institutional resources, teaching opportunities, and support for regional and national conference participation.
