UConn Health has begun the process of resuming routine appointments and elective procedures, and we are committed to creating the safest possible environment for our patients, employees, and visitors.

Education and Training

The faculty of Ophthalmology is dedicated to the education and development of the next generation of physicians. Medical students, residents, and fellows are provided an opportunity to develop their ophthalmology skills and advance their ophthalmic knowledge in an environment of exemplary clinical care.

If you are student or resident interested in ophthalmology, please send your request via email to Dr. Jeanine Suchecki. In Ophthalmology, we provide first, second, third, and fourth year experiences, shadowing, and mentoring. In addition to our third year student rotation, we have Student Continuity Practice (SCP) for those interested in ophthalmology as a career as well as electives for anyone with an interest in learning more about ophthalmology.

For general student and resident questions or more information, contact Marcia Baisley at baisley@uchc.edu or 860-679-4843.
