SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University

Department of Ophthalmology

Education Programs

Ophthalmology education is provided to the faculty, community physicians, and residents through a very robust Continuing Medical Education series of grand rounds, didactic talks, case presentations, and all day symposia. We also take a very active role in educating the medical student community who rotate in our outpatient clinics and offices where we provide direct supervision. Teaching and imparting knowledge is one of the department's core missions and we are committed to providing excellent learning opportunities.



The post-graduate program accommodates 21 residents benefiting from the expert SUNY Downstate faculty.


Continuing Medical Education provides educational courses for practicing physicians, designed to address the practical aspects of ophthalmic treatment and concepts underlying a sound clinical practice.
