How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in the Ophthalmology Residency Program at Emory University. Following is information about the program. It is important that you pay careful attention to the requirements: your application must be complete before it will be considered. The following is required:

1. A complete CAS application. We participate in the San Francisco Matching Program. For further information, contact:

San Francisco Matching Program
P.O. Box 7584
San Francisco , CA 94120-7584
(415) 447-0350

2. A physician who is in the military service at the time the application is submitted should ask his Commanding Officer to direct a letter of recommendation to the Ophthalmology Residency Program at Emory. This should contain an evaluation of the physician's character and professional qualifications. Additionally, please inform us of any military commitment pending.

3. We would appreciate a recent photograph so that interviewers can identify applicants during the interview process. (Must be sent in addition to the CAS application to Miss Terri Trotter, Residency Program Coordinator in Ophthalmology, 1365B Clifton Rd., Suite BT401A, Atlanta, GA 30322) Please do not send your photograph until requested.

Deadline (for the receipt of all required materials): Friday, September 14, 2018.

Interviews: December 1 and 2, 2018

Our interview process is taken quite seriously to make the best possible selections for our program. Additionally, we make every effort to provide ample opportunity for each applicant to talk with members of the residency selection committee and to mingle with current residents. Due to the extent of this process, we limit interviews to a fraction of the applicants who have completed application requirements. Due to the high quality of our applicants, decisions regarding interviews are extremely difficult to make. Candidates who are not selected for an interview will be informed by mail, as quickly as possible. Interviews by invitation only. There are no alternatives. The Emory interview process takes up most of the day. Many candidates feel it is a worthwhile experience (we will also seek your evaluation of our interview process).

Our criteria for selection includes high quality academic performance and strong personal qualifications.

Here are some other important facts that you should know:

1. Frequently we need to contact applicants for information. Please provide your current address, phone numbers (home, work, and cell), and email address.

2. This is a three-year residency program; a year of accredited internship (Translational or Prelim Medicine—PGY-1) is required before starting your residency.

You may also look at the website for Graduate Medical Education at Emory University for more information. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Resident Education by writing to Miss Terri Trotter, Emory Eye Center, 1365B Clifton Road, NE, Suite BT401A, Atlanta, GA 30322; or call Miss Trotter 404-778-4530.
