Dr. Dawn Goedde

From the Residency Director

Thank you for your interest in the Residency Program at The Ohio State University College of Optometry.

Completing a residency was one of the best career decisions of my life, and as Ohio State Optometry’s Residency Program Director, I have firsthand experience navigating the rewarding journey that lies ahead. 

The residency programs affiliated with Ohio State Optometry offer a variety of specialties. If you’re interested in pushing the boundaries of your knowledge in ocular disease, pediatrics, or cornea and contact lenses, our residencies challenge you to think critically, allowing you to fine-tune your skills as a clinician. 

In addition, completing an Ohio State Optometry residency will open a magnitude of doors for you. Graduates of our residency programs can be found across the country in a wide array of practice modalities from academics to private practice to helping veterans. 

Whether you’re just beginning to investigate your residency options or finalizing your application decision, our program coordinators and I would be happy to discuss our program with you. Please call or email us if you would like to learn more about The Ohio State University College of Optometry’s Residency Program.
