Board Pass Rate

Our graduates are well prepared to become board-certified ophthalmologists. Over the past ten years, 95 percent of graduates passed both the oral and written examinations on the first attempt.

International Opportunities

PGY3 Residents at the MUSC Storm Eye Institute have a unique opportunity to learn ophthalmic surgical techniques while bringing eye care to underserved communities in Belize. The International Rotation Elective was created by a group of residents and Dr. Millicent Peterseim in 2016 to provide care to those in need in Central America. This international opportunity is instrumental in the education of residents so that at the completion of their training they will become leaders in medicine and in our "global village."

Community Outreach

The MUSC Storm Eye Institute supports a variety of community service initiatives aimed at providing eye care services to the underserved populations of the Lowcountry.

The Storm SIGHT Free Clinic program was created by a group of residents and medical students in the Fall of 2004 to provide care to those in need. Over 250 patients are cared for each year providing a comprehensive dilated eye exam. Volunteers generously support our cause, donating thousands of hours of community service each year. We would like to express our gratitude to the patients, volunteers, and contributors for their tremendous support. Storm SIGHT Free Clinics have been instrumental in the education of residents and medical students so that at the completion of their training they will become leaders in medicine and in their communities.
