Ophthalmology Residency Position

Ophthalmology Residency Position

One PGY2 position (OPHTO-1) is available for a three year residency training in Ophthalmology beginning in July 1, 2021. In order to train ophthalmologists who will transform the way ophthalmic care is delivered in the next 100 years, The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) requested and were approved for an expansion of the existing residency training program for residents beginning July 2021. Two previously distinct training programs (New York Eye and Ear Infirmary with seven residents per year and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai with four residents per year) will now be combined into one program, creating the largest training program in the country (with 10 residents per year). In this new program, residents will learn in a diverse set of clinical environments, preparing them to pursue any pathway that they choose, such as clinical comprehensive practice, sub-specialty training, medical education, physician scientist, or global health.


Please review the following eligibility requirements for the ophthalmology residency program.

  • Graduation from an accredited US medical school or satisfactory completion of ECFMG certification.
  • Applicants who have already completed post graduate training must demonstrate satisfactory completion of an ACGME approved PGY1 program. Internships that give the applicant primary responsibility for patient care in a field such as internal medicine, surgery, transitional, or family medicine are preferred.
  • Satisfactory completion of USMLE Step 1 for the application. However, satisfactory completion of USMLE Steps 2 (CS and CK) and 3 is required prior to starting ophthalmology residency.
  • Applicants must be eligible for New York State licensure as a physician
  • Qualifications with the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai’s and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai resident employment policies.
