How To Apply

Application Process

Interested applicants may apply through the San Francisco Match.

Ophthalmology is an early matching program, prior to the traditional NRMP match. All applications are reviewed by a panel of faculty who pay special attention to the applicant’s overall academic record, personal statement, and letters of recommendation. From the pool of applicants, approximately 30-45 applicants are offered an interview. We traditionally offer two interview dates for applicants to choose from. Under-represented minorities in ophthalmology are encouraged to apply.  For the 2020 application cycle all interviews will be administered virtually.
