Congrats to our 2021 Graduates

Harvard Ophthalmology held its clinical trainee graduation on Thursday, June 17. The outdoor ceremony, held at the Boston Museum of Science, celebrated eight Harvard Ophthalmology residents, the AY2020–2021 Chief Resident, and two optometry residents, as well as 23 clinical fellows from Mass Eye and Ear, Joslin Diabetes Center, and Boston Children’s Hospital.

“Based on the resiliency, compassion, and creativity that each and every one of our residents and fellows have shown—throughout their training and especially during COVID 19—I know that they will be thoughtful change agents who will help lead us into a brighter future,” remarked Harvard Ophthalmology Chair Joan W. Miller, MD. Read our event recap

What’s Next for Our Graduates?

After residency, one graduate serves as Chief Resident and Director of the Eye Trauma Service at Mass Eye and Ear for the following academic year. This junior faculty position provides a strong foundation in academic ophthalmology and extensive surgical experience.

Others join private practices or accept junior faculty positions at academic medicine institutions.
