International Ophthalmology Experience

Project Orbis, Ophthalmology ResidentThe University of Iowa provides a global perspective. Ophthalmology Residents have an opportunity to participate in an international training experience during their third year of training. This experience exposes residents to different health care systems around the world and helps shape practice and career choices. In some cases, residents travel with Iowa alumni on global health and mission trips. Our residents have traveled to places such as Nigeria, Philippines, India, Peru and the Dominican Republic.
