The core of the Division of Ophthalmology is our residency training program in ophthalmology at Rhode IslandHospital and The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The first Rhode Island Hospital ophthalmology resident graduated in 1966, and our we are continuing to grow as an academic division.
Under the current direction of Division Chief Michael E. Migliori, MD, FACS, Residency Program Director Kimberly V. Miller, MD, and Assistant Residency Program Director Wendy Chen, MD, the training program provides a broad educational experience for its residents and medical students and recognizes that the program's success depends as much on the quality of its residents and medical students as it does on the quality of the faculty.
The residency is based at Rhode Island Hospital, the Principal Teaching Hospital for the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University. Our residents also rotate through the VA Eye Clinic at Eagle Square and operate at the Providence VA Medical Center.
Our program is one of only a handful worldwide that have an EyeSi Virtual surgical simulator. Located at the Providence VA Medical Center Eye Clinic, this state of the art surgery unit has anterior and posterior segment modules that allows residents to enhance their surgical skills.
