Research Opportunities

Residents are encouraged to collaborate with the Eye Institute’s clinical and research faculty on projects. Every resident is required to present a clinical or scientific paper at the annual Resident-Fellow Research meeting held every June. Funding is available to help support independent resident research. In addition, residents are encouraged to present their research at regional and national meetings and are funded to present first-author papers and/or posters. Senior residents are allowed to attend one scientific conference of their choice. The depth and diversity of research at Harkness enables residents to have tremendous opportunities that are truly unique.
