TIPS ON HOW TO LOCATE A RESIDENCY
 

Ophthalmology residencies are in high demand. Preparing for and locating one can be a challenge. Here area a few tips that may assist you in your preparation and search:

It is strongly encouraged that the interested candidate work to obtain a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery, preferably at an academic institution with ophthalmologists in the United States or Canada. An internship is a good way to acquire more skills in all parts of veterinary medicine and hopefully some ophthalmic skills. Additionally, conducting a research project with an ophthalmologist during an internship would be helpful to demonstrate the candidate's interest in ophthalmology, gain research experience, and develop a relationship with an ophthalmologist who could write letters those critically important letters of recommendation.
