The UCSD Department of Ophthalmology takes four residents per year, exclusively through the Central Application Service (CAS) provided by the San Francisco Matching Program (SF Match): https://www.sfmatch.org/.
In addition to the CAS materials we request applicants to resend the professional photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for this supplement and application is September 30. Without this supplemental photo your application may not be reviewed.
Typically, the SF Match sends about 400 applicant files for us to review for our four positions, and we invite about 10% of these in late November / early December (dates are chosen each year). While no absolute selection criteria exist, the Residency Selection Committee considers the following:
