The core of the Division of Ophthalmology is our residency training program in ophthalmology at Rhode Island Hospital and The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The first Rhode Island Hospital ophthalmology resident graduated in 1966, and our we are continuing to grow as an academic division.
Under the current direction of Division Chief Michael E. Migliori, MD, FACS, Residency Program Director Kimberly V. Miller, MD, and Associate Residency Program Director Wendy Chen, MD, PhD, the training program provides a broad educational experience for its residents and medical students and recognizes that the program's success depends as much on the quality of its residents and medical students as it does on the quality of the faculty.
The residency is based at Rhode Island Hospital, the principal teaching hospital for the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University. Our residents also operate at the Providence VA Medical Center and rotate through the VA Eye Clinic at Eagle Square.
The residents are fully integrated into the Lifespan Physician Group (LPG) Ophthalmology practice which serves a globally diverse patient population, and the pathology we treat in our clinic is equally diverse and rich in opportunities for learning. We provide 24-hour eye emergency coverage for the Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children's Hospital emergency department, the 5th busiest ER in the United States. The breadth of experiences, from primary eye care to tertiary level sub-specialty ophthalmologic care, is an invaluable asset for our trainees.
We are committed to increasing the diversity of our housestaff and welcome applications from individuals who would bring additional dimensions to the program's research, teaching and clinical missions.
