Visiting Students

Thank you for considering a Visiting Student Rotation with the Northwestern University Department of Ophthalmology! We are excited to offer the opportunity for visiting students to gain valuable clinical and surgical skills through our month long rotation, working with highly skilled faculty in a state of the art facility that sits in the heart of Chicago’s famed Magnificent Mile.

This rotation allows students to focus on 1 to 2 subspecialties in ophthalmology and to present a case at the department Grand Rounds, towards the end of your rotation. 

For more information regarding the Visiting Student Application process, including application requirements and rotation dates, please visit the Northwestern Visiting Students Page.
