Welcome to the Kresge Eye Institute residency. Our residency is a large metropolitan based program that provides primary and subspecialty ophthalmic care in the city of Detroit. Highlights of our program include a busy adult resident clinic that generates large volumes of anterior segment procedures. There is a significant exposure to a large pediatric population at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Residents spend multiple rotations at the John Dingell VA Hospital where their experience provides numerous anterior segment procedures to that patient population.

Our mission in residency training at the Kresge Eye Institute is to provide an optimal clinical education to physicians in the science and art of the specialty of ophthalmology. The ophthalmology residency training program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program has seven residents each year. Kresge Eye Institute uses the central application service of the San Francisco Match Program.

The program is designed to provide a broad foundation in all subspecialties of ophthalmology in a 36-month curriculum, which combines a structured clinical and basic science course, clinical conferences and independent study. Our attending faculty work closely with the residents throughout their training. The full-time faculty includes fellowship-trained ophthalmologists in every subspecialty area.

A residency at the Kresge Eye Institute exposes the trainee to all aspects of comprehensive and subspecialty ophthalmic care. The experience is an intense three-year total immersive experience.
