Carter, MD, Department ChairWelcome to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Department of Ophthalmology, I am glad you have decided to find out more information about our top-ranked institution. We are proud to have a Residency program ranked in the top 5 in the country by Ophthalmology Times. With five residents graduating from our three-year training program each year, along with 12 fellows, we feel we have a large part in shaping the future of ophthalmology.

With over 56,000 square feet on two floors of the Pomerantz Family Pavilion and multiple off-site clinic and laboratory locations, our more than 60 full-time, adjunct, and emeritus faculty invite you to learn more about our institution.
