History of Emory Eye Center's Ophthalmology Training Program

As early as the 1940s, the Emory Eye Center Ophthalmology training program has developed strong clinicians and surgeons. The venues for training, initially centered at Grady, have grown to include equally strong components at the Atlanta VA Medical Center and Emory Clinic. The diversity of patients and complexity of their eye diseases creates an experience unmatched by most training centers around the country.

When Thomas M. Aaberg, Sr., MD, was named chairman of Ophthalmology and director of Emory Eye Center in 1988, the concept of education and training became an even stronger priority. He focused on recruiting faculty who excelled in teaching as well as clinical care, and also brought Geoff Broocker, MD, to Emory as the departmentís first full-time residency program director.
