Department of Ophthalmology
School of Medicine Queen's University


At Queen’s we strongly believe that being at the cutting edge of medicine requires a solid grounding in research fundamentals. Each resident participates in important research projects from PGY-2 through PGY-5. Significant support - including idea generation, methodological and statistical consultation, and funding are provided.

Residents are also provided with significant time to carry out their research (generally 10% of their time). Residents showcase their research at our annual departmental research symposium, and many also present at national and international conferences. Many Queens’ residents have been honoured with national awards for research excellence.
