The Tulane Ophthalmology Residency supports a fully accredited program with five residents in each class of its three-year program. Those interested in pursuing fellowship training in a sub-specialty of ophthalmology may add one to two additional years of training following residency.
The objectives of the ophthalmology residency are to enable residents to increase general medical and surgical knowledge, develop strong values and uphold the highest standards for practice, and develop specific understanding and skill in the diagnosis and management of eye disease.
These goals are accomplished through direct patient care experience, didactic teaching, and tutorial instruction. As they improve in skill and knowledge, residents undertake gradually increasing responsibility for patient care under the supervision of our faculty.
Tulane's three-year, ophthalmology residency training program offers rotations at Tulane Medical Center and other Tulane-affiliated hospitals, including the University Medical Center and the Veterans Affairs Hospitals of New Orleans, Alexandria, and Biloxi and Rapides Regional Medical Center.
