Training and Education

The UCLA Stein Eye Institute and the UCLA Department of Ophthalmology jointly offer an extensive array of academic courses, training programs, conferences and workshops for medical students, ophthalmology residents, clinical and research fellows, practicing physicians and related healthcare professionals. The programs encompass the gamut of ophthalmic and vision science education and offer a stimulating environment for learning and meeting degree and certificate requirements. The residency and fellowship programs are among the top in the country. Predoctoral and postdoctoral fellows particularly benefit from the wealth of new and unfolding research generated by the vision scientists at the Institute.
