About This Program
Since 1950 this residency has provided subspecialty eye care to the Syracuse metropolitan area and the large Central New York region (which extends from the Canadian border to Pennsylvania). We serve a diverse patient population, including a large refugee population and indigent population – many with advanced pathology.
Our core principle is to provide comprehensive training for our residents so each can confidently practice or start a fellowship upon graduation. We put emphasis on patient ownership, strong surgical skills and efficient clinical acumen. The program is fully committed to providing individualized resources needed for each resident to succeed and flourish.
Resident training takes place in primary clinics and three hospitals, which are all within walking distance of each other. Our faculty includes many graduates of this program and national leaders within their individual specialties. Distinguishing characteristics of this program include a willingness to continually modernize with focus on resident wellness.
