Education | Residency Program | Resident Services
We conduct our outpatient training in six locations:
University Eye Service, Washington University Eye Center
In the University Eye Service (UES) over 9,000 patient visits are recorded yearly. Residents are supervised by attending physicians. They learn the basics of general eyecare, management of inpatient consultations and retina, glaucoma, cornea and anterior segment surgery cases. Third year residents are supervised by attending physicians and fellows. The Washington University Eye Center is comprised of eight subspecialty services. Second year residents assist full-time faculty and fellows in patient care. In addition to faculty, the chief resident supervises the UES clinic.
