Application Process


There are four positions available in Mayo Clinic's Ophthalmology Residency each year. Appointments are made through the SF Match.

Several PGY-1 positions are available at Mayo Clinic for appointees to the Ophthalmology Residency. Appointments to these PGY-1 positions are made through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).

How to apply

You must apply through the SF Match. The application form and all supporting documentation must be submitted by Sept. 1, approximately 20 months before the start of the academic year in early July.

The ophthalmology match for PGY-2 positions occurs in January, several weeks before the deadline for the NRMP match for PGY-1 positions. Therefore, applicants know their ophthalmology results before they submit their NRMP rank list.

  1. To apply to the program, visit the SF Match website. Mayo Clinic requires no further documents beyond what SF Match requires.
  2. Applicants considered for an appointment are invited to visit Mayo Clinic for a personal interview with the program director and selected faculty. Interviews are conducted in October and November each year.
