While completing a residency at the University of Kentucky, there are hundreds of opportunities to assist in the operating room and to perform surgery as a lead surgeon. Our residents exceed the national median on the numbers of surgeries they assist on and perform as chief surgeon.
Upon completion of residency, our residents have gone all over the country and overseas, with about two-thirds going on to complete fellowships. In the last 5 years, the University of Kentucky Ophthalmology residents have done fellowships in the subspecialties of: Surgical Retina, Medical Retina, Cornea, Glaucoma, Pediatrics and Oculoplastics.
Here is information on recent resident cataract surgeries averages and placement after graduation.
