Kellogg has a strong affiliation with institutions in Brazil; the University of São Paulo (USP), Santa Casa de Misericordia in São Paulo, The Federal University of São Paulo, and The Federal University of Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte.

Our faculty, ophthalmology residents, and medical students have collaborated on research projects and education. Each year we host ophthalmology residents from each institution.
