Georgia Eye Partners Welcomes Its New Residents
- Posted on: Sep 25 2018
Georgia Eye Partners is proud to welcome this year’s new residents to the practice. Being the sixth year of our residency program, we are proud of the successful educational opportunities this program provides. This program started with one resident per year, growing to three residents currently. This growth offers our residents a robust clinical training experience with exposure to all specialties within the practice.
Georgia Eye Partners is dedicated to providing our patients in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia with the highest quality medical and surgical specialty eye care. We are proud to partner with optometric educational institutions helping to train and educate optometry fourth year students as well as the optometric residents.
