Both basic science and clinical research opportunities are available at UTMB Health Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. Medical students can develop a self-directed research project through the Ophthalmology Research Elective or can work on existing projects with OVS residents and faculty. Presentation of research through a poster or publication is encouraged. Please contact Pam Hentschel at firstname.lastname@example.org for the most up to date information about research opportunities.
Medical student projects in the past have won awards and been presented at international meetings. For a list of previous as well as ongoing medical student research, please click here.
