USC Ophthalmology Researchers Find More
Effective Treatments For Blinding Eye Diseases



The USC Department of Ophthalmology is dedicated to world-class patient care, research, and teaching of medical students, residents and fellows under the organizational umbrella of the USC Roski Eye Institute and the Los Angeles County+USC (LAC+USC) Medical Center Department of Ophthalmology. The LAC+USC Department of Ophthalmology is academically affiliated with USC Keck School of Medicine, with all members of the USC Ophthalmology faculty cross-privileged at LAC as well as Keck School of Medicine facilities. The LAC+USC/USC Roski Eye Institute Residency Program brings together the strengths of four remarkable institutions (LAC+USC Medical Center, USC Roski Eye Institute, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), and the Veterans Affairs (VA) Downtown Los Angeles Medical Center). These outstanding institutions, coupled with our faculty’s deep-rooted expertise and commitment, provide a wealth of opportunities for residents to experience a tremendous diversity, breadth, and complexity of clinical challenges within a supportive learning environment.

Residents are supervised and trained by full-time USC Keck School of Medicine faculty, voluntary part-time faculty from the community, well as cross-appointed faculty at CHLA and the VA. We train 7 residents per year. Residents are primarily based at LAC+USC for their first and third years of training, and spend significantly more time at the USC Roski Eye Institute, CHLA, and VA during their second year of residency. A unique aspect of the residency program is the LAC+USC longitudinal resident clinic where residents follow patients throughout their three-year residency from the initial evaluation and diagnosis to any procedures or surgical interventions the patients may need. We provide integrated exposure to clinics, conferences, and operating rooms at LAC+USC, USC Roski Eye Institute, CHLA, and the VA throughout the course of the three-year training.
