The John A. Moran Eye Center's exceptional clinical care, residency program, and research place it among the top 10 programs in the nation, according to a survey of top leadership at eye centers across the country.
An Ophthalmology Times survey of chairpersons and residency program directors released in the October edition of the magazine ranks Moran at No. 10 in the nation for having the best overall program.
Moran's residency program ranked No. 12 in the nation, while its clinical care was ranked No. 11 and its research program No. 12.
As part of University of Utah Health, Moran serves as the largest ophthalmology clinical care and research facility in the Intermountain West with more than 60 faculty members and 10 satellite clinics.
Physicians provide comprehensive care in nearly all ophthalmic subspecialties, making the Moran Eye Center a major referral center for complex cases, with more than 142,000 patient visits and 7,000 surgeries annually. Moran also supports 15 research labs, where internationally awarded faculty, including one of the world's top retinal teams, are developing the treatments of tomorrow.
Faculty train 12 fellows and four residents each year in one of the nation's most selective and unique programs, identified as a model by the American Academy of Ophthalmology. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks Moran among its Best Hospitals for Ophthalmology.
Moran CEO and Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences Chair Randall J Olson, MD, leads more than 500 employees working to ensure Moran's mission that no person with a blinding condition, eye disease, or visual impairment should be without hope, understanding, and treatment.
