Match Support

Students wanting to match in ophthalmology can work with our faculty to prepare for your next step. In July, a dedicated panel of ophthalmology educators review students’ applications and give advice. This includes a reviewing student CVs, strategizing away rotations and discussing residency interviews. We also host a career advising session for the Phase 2 students and a “meet and greet” event after the IC2 Clinical Skills Session.
