We are pleased to offer several excellent clerkship opportunities for medical students interested in clinical exposure to the management of ocular diseases. We hope to provide ophthalmology clerkship experiences that are equally enriching for medical students interested in primary care specialties as for those pursuing a career in ophthalmology. Read more about our objectives for this program here.
Our two- and four-week clerkships are offered primarily at the University of Washington’s primary teaching institutions in Seattle. Additional clerkship experiences are offered throughout the WWAMI region. Students interested in pursuing a career in ophthalmology are strongly encouraged to enroll in a clerkship at the new University of Washington Eye Institute at Harborview Medical Center (OPHTH 681) or the Seattle Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Medical Center (OPHTH 685). In addition, our department offers first- and second-year preceptorships to University of Washington medical students interested in observing the practice of ophthalmology.
Thank you for your interest in the University of Washington ophthalmology clerkship elective. If you have any additional questions, or if you need assistance with the clerkship registration process, please feel free to contact me through our clerkship administrator, Ms. Dorrie Quirante, at (206) 685-1969 or email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you on our clerkship.
