Field of Study: Ophthalmology
Description The Postgraduate Residency Training Program in Ophthalmology at Queen’s University is of 5 years duration beginning with rotating exposure to several areas of medicine in PGY1 that lay the ground work for core training in the years to follow. Years 2 through 5 are marked by increasing clinical and surgical exposure under the guidance of more senior Residents and the Departmental Staff. Our Program is organized to train well-rounded General Ophthalmologists who could competently practice in either a rural or urban setting. As well, the interested individual can explore areas of particular intrigue in greater depth through additional training onsite or as an elective offsite. In some cases this may lead to Fellowship sub-specialization after graduation from the Program. In the past 10 years 45 % of our Residents have gone on to Fellowship training at other national or international centers.
