Chairman's Letter

MandavaWelcome to the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. 

Our Department’s home is the newly expanded UCHealth Eye Center on the Anschutz Medical Campus.  This state of the art facility is one of the largest eye centers in the country and serves not only patients in the Rocky Mountain region but also patients all over the world. 

The technological innovations conceived and developed by Departmental faculty have changed the practice of eye care throughout the world.  Our educational programs train the next generation of leaders in ophthalmology.  Our specialists have developed national and international reputations for excellence in routine and complex ophthalmic care.  We have invested heavily in tracking our clinical outcomes and we are proud that our clinicians perform at the highest levels in their respective fields.

For all of you contemplating joining our organization in Colorado whether it is as a resident, fellow, clinical faculty, research faculty, or staff member, I welcome you to the website.  It is a powerful tool to keep us connected to you.
