Ophthalmology
Student Elective Rotation

 

About

The Ophthalmology Residency Program offers student elective rotations and audition rotations at various affiliated sites across Philadelphia. These sites include Lankenau Medical Center, Springfield Hospital, Wills Eye Hospital, as well as various private offices. These rotations will provide students both exposure and experience in various disciplines of ophthalmology spanning inpatient, outpatient, acute care and operative settings. Audition rotation season is considered to be during the months of June through December. Rotations outside these months, while just as academically and clinically valuable, will not be considered audition rotations. Rotations may be scheduled as either two or four week blocks.
