Ophthalmology Residency Program

Welcome from the Chair to Sinai Hospital's Ophthalmology Residency Program

Dr. Don Abrams - Chief of Ophthalmology at Sinai Hospital Krieger Eye InsituteWhen you come to the Krieger Eye Institute you become part of a residency program that combines the virtues of quality patient care and compassion with the resources of a major community hospital.   Since 1946, the Department of Ophthalmology has embraced growth, community service, research, and resident education.

As a resident at Sinai, you will find that we take a deep interest not only in your training but also in your future.  We prepare each resident to become a first-rate clinician and we also provide training that will allow you to accept a fellowship position if you choose to do so.  We select our residents with a view towards developing a relationship that reaches far beyond the three-year training period.  In addition, Baltimore’s diverse and dynamic culture enriches the years you will spend here.

Ophthalmology residents at Sinai join an extraordinary program in an outstanding environment.  The academic components of your training are enhanced by our faculty which spans all the subspecialties of ophthalmology.  Residents receive superb training in the basic skills expected from an ophthalmology residency including cataract surgery, corneal disease, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, oculoplastics, pediatric ophthalmology, retinal disease and uveitis.   In addition, our ASOPRS Oculoplastics and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship adds depth to the educational experience of the residents.
 
Our Department is committed to training world-class ophthalmologists and we  look forward to residents who will one day join our exceptional group of alumni.  We welcome you and your family to join us at Sinai and are excited to once again offer our free-standing ophthalmology residency program.
