Ophthalmology Residency Match
The Ophthalmology Residency Matching Program (OMP) was established in 1977 by the Association of University of Professors of Ophthalmology (AUPO) to coordinate the PGY-2 appointments for Ophthalmology programs and to relieve the pressure on applicants and program directors resulting from early appointments and uncoordinated appointment dates. The program supplements the PGY-1 matching services of the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). It is timed to allow applicants to know their PGY-2 placement in Ophthalmology before they submit their rank list for PGY-1 choices.
The Association of University
Professors of Ophthalmology (AUPO) sponsors the matching process and
is responsible for enforcement of applicable rules. The Matching office
does not sponsor or approve any of the participating programs. The function
of the Matching Program is strictly limited to processing of the match.
Listing or not listing of any program in the directory does not imply any
form of approval, disapproval or endorsement.
