RESIDENCY IN OPHTHALMOLOGY
Note: Next position available in 2011.
This residency is a three-year program approved by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists. The objectives of this program are to train specialists in veterinary ophthalmology and to prepare them for board certification by the ACVO. The program emphasizes clinical training, clinical and didactic teaching, and research experience. Residents are mentored by three (3) ACVO diplomates. The clinical training will be accomplished in the Veterinary Medical Center of the University of Tennessee. The Ophthalmology Service cares for a diverse case load, including small and large companion animals, food animals, caged birds and exotic pets, and zoo species and wildlife. The resident must complete a research project and have at least one manuscript accepted for publication by the end of the residency program.
Applications are currently being reviewed for a resident in Comparative Ophthalmology to begin in July 2011. Please follow the link for additional information.
