The goal of the Yale Ophthalmology Residency Program is to train future leaders in both clinical and academic ophthalmology. In order to achieve this mission, the resident’s day-to-day responsibilities has been meticulously structured to maximize the educational experience. In the first year of training, residents master examination skills and management of the general ophthalmology patient. In the second year, residents focus on medical and surgical evaluation and management of the specialty patient. In the third year, complicated surgical management is the focus.
