Apply to the Casey Eye Institute Ophthalmology Residency Program

Dr. Dan Tu with ophthalmology residents at OHSU

We offer five positions for a four-year ophthalmology residency, including an integrated internship, through the San Francisco Match. Please apply through the SF Match websiteOur application deadline is Sept. 22, 2023. Interview invitations will be sent around Oct. 10, 2023. 

The 2023 interview dates are:

Monday, Nov. 13, 2023
Monday, Dec. 4, 2023

All 2023 interviews for ophthalmology residency will be virtual, including ours. Our virtual interview day will consist of presentations about the program by residency leadership and residents, three interviews with our faculty, and opportunities to interact with and ask our residents questions. 

In the SF Match application, our program strongly suggests selecting the resilience personal statement question as one of the two essays completed. If this essay is not chosen for the application, then we highly recommend submitting the resilience personal statement essay to us directly.

We do not rank candidates without interviewing, and we do not offer alternate dates. Last year, we offered interviews to 48 candidates out of over 700 applications received. We expect to do similarly this year.  We are looking to recruit a diverse group of residents who show outstanding promise as future ophthalmologists. We do not select candidates based on a single criteria, and we do review the applications in a holistic fashion.  Applicants must be legally able to work in the U.S. or eligible to obtain work authorization. The GME office facilitates visas for trainees, including but not limited to J-1 Clinical and H1B visas.

For additional information about the application process, please contact: Susan Minnieweather at 503-494-9255.

COVID-19 vaccination requirement

OHSU firmly stands behind the community benefit of vaccination against COVID-19. In accordance with OHSU's vaccination policy and state law, potential applicants are required to have a COVID vaccine prior to the start of training.

A chance to visit

In addition to our virtual interviews, an open house event for residency program candidates is tentatively planned for Friday, Jan. 6, 2023 at OHSU Casey Eye Institute. It will consist of lunch with our departmental and residency leadership and faculty, residents, and fellows and a tour of our facilities. Opportunities will be available for attendees to interact with current residents and residency program directors.
