Graduates of the residency and fellowship programs we offer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences are in academic medical centers and private practice throughout the world. The impact that our graduates have is inspiring and our mission is shared globally through their work.
We aim to provide relevant news and content for our esteemed alumni, as well as a place for them to connect, share ideas and give back to their alma mater.
The Alumni Association hosts a fall reunion at the American Academy of Ophthalmology each year and has a Facebook group. Ask to join that group as an easy way to stay in touch with your alumni colleagues. If you have news to share, we would love to hear from you!
Timothy Daley, MD, who completed residency in 2011 and his pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus fellowship in 2012, is the current Alumni Association president and practices in Dubuque, Iowa.
Gifts help the department continue to conduct high-quality research and to provide state-of-the-art clinical care and world-class training for tomorrow’s leaders in eye care and vision research. This support—from patients, families, alumni, faculty and other friends—provides the extra margin essential for excellence.
Though the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting has moved to a new format due to the pandemic, our University of Wisconsin - Madison Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences' colleagues will be busy presenting, attending and teaching courses.
