UT Health San Antonio offers a three-year ophthalmology residency. We seek highly motivated individuals with excellent academic qualifications. Residents are challenged in the clinical and surgical settings, and they are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the many research opportunities within our department. Our graduates are well prepared to enter a busy comprehensive practice or successfully pursue fellowship training in the area of their choice. Approximately one-half of our graduates have entered fellowships after residency and the other half have gone into private practices. Our program is located in San Antonio, a vibrant city with rich cultural diversity, excellent schools and affordable housing. Our historic city has a population of nearly 1.5 million and ranks among the ten largest cities in the United States; yet, its warm and friendly citizens give it a small town feel.
Four residency positions are available at the PGY-2 level. Our program participates in the Ophthalmology Matching Program sponsored by the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology and administered by the San Francisco Matching Program.
