We will offer five positions for a four-year ophthalmology residency, including an integrated internship, through the San Francisco Match.

Residency candidate Interviews

The 2021 interview dates are:

Saturday, Nov. 20, 2021
Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021

All 2021 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 to four interviews with our faculty, and opportunities to interact with and ask our residents questions.

We do not rank candidates without interviewing, and we do not offer alternate dates. Last year, we offered interviews to 42 candidates out of about 570 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.

A chance to visit
