The program is currently an ACGME-accredited three-year residency, with four residents at each level (PGY2 – PGY4). Accepted applicants must successfully complete a PGY1 year in an accredited program per the American Board of Ophthalmology guidelines.
Beginning with applicants that match with us in January 2021, we will become a four-year training program, incorporating the PGY-1 internship year as mandated by the ACGME. This first year of training will include 9 months of internal medicine, and 3 months of ophthalmology at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital, followed by 3 years of dedicated ophthalmology training.
