As you prepare for a career in ophthalmology, you need a broad vision -- from complex cases to the “bread and butter” cases of daily practice. Summa’s program offers this broad exposure …all within a very intimate program of just 6 residents.
You’ll have intense personal contact with attending physicians trained in all the 8 ophthalmology sub-specialties. Without fellows to compete with, you get immediate surgical experience and opportunities for both lab and clinical research. And advanced training tools are right here in your hands – from lasers to the capsulorrhexis simulator, the latest virtual reality cataract surgery training tool.
Our new Chair/Program Director of Ophthalmology, James H. Bates, MD and Nancy E. Awender, MD is Associate Residency Program Director.
