Summer/Fall 2020


Dear Applicant:


Thank you for your interest in a residency position in the University of Florida Department of Ophthalmology beginning July 1, 2022. We are enclosing a description of our residency program for your information.


The Department of Ophthalmology selects residents largely on the basis of medical school standing & grades, the quality of your 3 letters of recommendation, and various relevant professional and personal attributes. We’re looking for residents who epitomize generosity, integrity and community.  A demonstrated previous interest in the field of ophthalmology i.e. research, volunteer work, etc. is helpful, but not necessary.


Our department participates in the San Francisco Ophthalmology Matching Program, so you must be registered with them in order to apply to our program.  The deadline for receiving your application is October 9, 2020.  Applications not completed by that date cannot be considered.


We grant interviews to approximately forty applicants. The interviews will be held on 3 selected dates in November and/or December. The personal interview is an important part of the application process and is a requirement for acceptance into our program.  We truly appreciate your interest in our program.
