The Ophthalmology residency training program at the Casey Eye Institute is the direct extension of the residency program established by Kenneth Swan , M.D. at the University of Oregon Medical School in 1944-45. As such, it is the oldest Ophthalmology training program on the West Coast. The department admits five residents per year.
The OOAA holds a continuing medical education meeting each year in the spring and a reception in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. The OOAA supports the residency training program by providing each resident with the AAO’s Basic and Clinical Science Curriculum. At each annual meeting, the Edward N. McLean Community Service Award is given to the resident judged to have made particular contributions in Community Service during the course of his/her residency training.
