Ophthalmology Residency Program

James Reynolds.

“Our department’s outstanding resources make UB an ideal environment in which to pursue your specialty training in ophthalmology,” says James D. Reynolds, MD, department chair and residency program director.

Our residency program puts you on the path to success by furnishing you with the skills, clinical judgment and knowledge essential for a dynamic career in ophthalmology.

The primary mission of the Department of Ophthalmology is:

  • the clinical and surgical training of physicians
  • research and development in the field of ophthalmology
  • the provision of high-quality tertiary eye care to the people of Western New York

To accomplish this goal, we have assembled a core group of fellowship-trained, full-time clinical faculty and research scientists supplemented by a dedicated group of volunteer faculty.

A consortium of hospitals that includes Erie County Medical Center, the Buffalo VA Medical Center and the Kaleida Health System (which includes Women's and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo) has formed an alliance with the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences to provide state-of-the-art health care to the region’s 1.5 million people.

The considerable resources of this system have been incorporated to provide an equally high-quality residency training program.
