How to Apply to the Ophthalmology Residency Program

For more than 20 years, I have had the privilege of serving as coordinator of the ophthalmology residency program at the University of Michigan. In this role, I have had the opportunity to meet applicants as they begin the interviewing process. As each new class is selected, I assist them in the logistics of moving to a new city, obtaining licensure, credentialing, and program basics. I also help them become familiar with their surroundings, from the University Hospital to the city of Ann Arbor.

It is a pleasure to work with the many wonderful and talented individuals who come through our program, and to keep in touch with them after they leave.

I look forward to meeting you.
