All applicants for the Ophthalmology Residency Program must register and submit an application through the SFMatch Central Application System. Once registered, you can view our program listing on the SFMatch directory website.

Applications are due by Oct. 1. Personal, on-site interviews are required and granted by invitation only. Candidates invited to interview will be requested to submit a photo and supplemental application. Applications received after Oct. 1 will be considered for interviews on a space-available basis.


Interview Day

The interview day starts with breakfast and an overview of the Ophthalmology Residency Program by the Department Chair and the residents.  Candidates are then interviewed by several faculty members.  The day is structured to give the candidate ample time to interact with our residents, have questions answered, and tour our parent institution, Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) and Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (SNGH).
