The Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences Department at UTMB Health in Galveston is one of the oldest in the Southwest and has a rich tradition of service and education excellence.

Our vision is to train each of our residents to assume positions of leadership in their career and to do so in a challenging, yet nurturing environment.

To that end, we have carefully designed a unique curriculum that provides graduated training in ophthalmic research and clinical and surgical skills, culminating in the third year as Chief Resident.

Some of the outstanding features of our residency program include a post-residency PhD program for residents interested in academic ophthalmology and a rotation at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Methodist Hospital in Houston.
