NYU Department of Ophthalmology Residency Program


The NYU Department of Ophthalmology has a unique mentoring system that help guide our residents through their training, strengthening and encouraging them for their future careers.

Every first year resident is assigned a senior "buddy" who can help guide them and serve as a touchstone as they acclimate during their first year. Towards the end of the first, and at the beginning of the second year of training, the resident is assigned 2 to 3 mentors, usually within their area of interest, who provide support, guidance, and assistance in both research and obtaining post-graduate fellowship training.
