The University of Missouri School of Medicine Ophthalmology residency program is one of the premier ophthalmic surgery training programs in the United States. With internationally recognized faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, extensive research space, and a large and diverse patient population, we attract outstanding residents from around the globe.

The Mason Eye Institute of the University of Missouri Columbia offers a four-year ACGME-accredited integrated residency training program. The residency program is in conjunction with the Harry S. Truman Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VA).

Four residents are accepted each year into the four-year program, with programs beginning the first week of July for the integrated PGY-1 year. The residency program is carefully designed to develop ophthalmologists who can provide quality eye care and meet the needs of patients both now and in the future, and who can contribute to the field of ophthalmology through participation in research.
