As you prepare for a career in ophthalmology, you need a broad vision – from complex cases to the “bread and butter” cases of daily practice.  Summa’s program offers this broad exposure …all within a very intimate program of just 6 residents.

You’ll have intense personal contact with attending physicians trained in all the 8 ophthalmology sub-specialties.  Without fellows to compete with, you get immediate surgical experience and opportunities for both lab and clinical research.  And advanced training tools are right here in your hands – from lasers to the capsulorrhexis simulator, the latest virtual reality cataract surgery training tool.

Our new Chair/Program Director of Ophthalmology, James H. Bates, MD and Nancy E. Awender, MD is Associate Residency Program Director.
