Ophthalmology Residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital

In 2019, the Ophthalmology Residency program at The Mount Sinai Hospital has been integrated with the Ophthalmology Residency at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE). The combined program will center in NYEE, building upon the hospitals’ longstanding reputation as a leader in ophthalmic education and its ranking as a top 20 residency program in US by Doximity Residency Navigator. The newly ACGME accredited residency program is now the largest in the nation, with 30 positions total.

The combined program offers residents unrivaled training opportunities and individualized support through unique clinical experiences, mentorship, and health care quality improvement initiatives. With rotations at four major medical centers (New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, The Mount Sinai Hospital, Elmhurst Hospital, and James J. Peters VA Medical Center) our residents have the opportunity to treat the widest spectrum of rare and complex eye disorders within different healthcare systems, in addition to comprehensive hands on surgical training with robust volume and diversity of pathology. In addition, trainees have access to some of the top medical research laboratories, clinical research programs, technology, and nationally and internationally renowned faculty—all of which provides an unparalleled training experience to help further your career in medicine.

Furthermore, graduating medical students who match into the program will have the opportunity to participate in an integrated internship year where they will spend three months rotating in ophthalmology, in addition to the nine months spent in medicine, prior to their residency.

Upon completion of their residency, our trainees are prepared to provide state-of-the-art comprehensive care and to be competitive candidates for the best fellowship programs nationwide.
