We conduct our outpatient training in three locations:
University Eye Service, Washington University Eye Center
In the University Eye Service (UES) over 21,500 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.
St. Louis Veterans’ Affairs Medical Center
Dr. David Vollman administers the program which includes nearly 900 surgical and laser procedures and 8,160 outpatient visits each year in this clinic.
St. Louis Children’s Eye Center
Dr. Larry Tychsen supervises the 5,200 annual outpatient visits and 3,800 surgeries in this clinical area devoted to pediatric ophthalmology.
