Bascom Palmer Eye Institute

Residency and Fellowship Programs

Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, which serves as the Department of Ophthalmology for the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, regards the education of its residents and fellows as one of its highest priorities. This tradition of excellence has been instrumental in earning the Institute world recognition as a premier teaching/research/patient care facility.

This year, the hospital has been ranked the #1 eye hospital in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for the 10th consecutive year and the residency training program has been rated #1 by Ophthalmology Times.

As an integral part of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Bascom Palmer has pursued its mission in three interrelated areas: treatment, research and education. The work conducted at the Institute’s two major components – the Anne Bates Leach Eye Hospital and the Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Vision Research Center – has had an international impact on the direction and advancement of ophthalmology.

We invite you to learn more about our training programs listed on the right and to meet the 2013-14 residents and fellows.
