Dr. Palmisano received his M.D. at New York University and his M.P.H. at Yale. Following completion of his clinical cornea fellowship at the University of Connecticut, he was in private practice before joining the Yale faculty in 2001. He has mentored residents in epidemiology-based research, especially high-risk glaucoma populations, and factors associated with their failure to follow up after glaucoma screening. The ophthalmology service he directs at the West Haven VA provides most of the surgical training experience for our residents.
