Dr. Helen Chung
– Among the highest surgical numbers in the country with recent graduates completing upwards of 750 full cataract cases, in addition to equally impressive numbers in other sub-specialty surgeries
– Large catchment area serving more than 2 million individuals, resulting in great depth and breadth of case presentations and surgical opportunities
– Over 50 staff ophthalmologists associated with the program, offering one of the highest staff-to-resident ratios in the country.
