Cornea - Assistant Professor

Yale School of Medicine
Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science

The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at School of Medicine is accepting applications for a full-time faculty member with a subspecialty interest in Cornea and Refractive Surgery.

The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at Yale has a long-standing tradition of excellence in clinical care and research in multiple subspecialty areas of ophthalmology. Our faculty provide clinical services for patients with over 75,000 visits annually at Yale Medicine Ophthalmology, the Smilow Cancer Hospital, the Dana Clinic at Yale New Haven Hospital, and the West Haven Veterans Affairs Hospital. We have a strong and competitive residency program, which consists of 15 residents, and 3 fellowship programs in retinal diseases, glaucoma, and oculoplastic surgery.  The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science is located within the Yale University School of Medicine, which is one of the nation’s oldest and most competitive medical schools, consistently ranking in the top few in federal research funding. Clinical services are delivered through Yale Medicine, which is the largest multispecialty physician practice in New England, containing 1400 providers.

The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science is affiliated with the Yale New Haven Health System, a growing health care system including Yale-New Haven Hospital and Saint Raphael’s Hospital, Bridgeport Hospital, Greenwich Hospital, and Lawrence and Memorial Hospital. The Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science has clinical offices at Yale Medicine Ophthalmology in New Haven and Guilford, CT, with easy access to the state-of-art ambulatory surgical centers at the New Haven site. The Department is planning to expand into Fairfield County and beyond. Our department is growing, with plans to double its clinical and academic footprint over the next 5 years, adding multiple new clinical and research faculty members to coincide with this geographic expansion.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a candidate who is interested in building a solid career in academic medicine in a superb setting for clinical practice, education, and research. The ideal candidate will be devoted to clinical excellence, to advancing our knowledge of understanding and treating ocular diseases, and have a firm commitment to the education of residents and medical students. Candidates must be certified or eligible for certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology and must have completed their fellowship training in corneal diseases.  Academic rank will be commensurate with qualifications. Applications from clinician scientists are particularly encouraged.
