Career

The University Hospital Tübingen is a leading centre of German university medicine. The University Eye Hospital Tübingen, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Bartz-Schmidt, offers the spectrum of maximum care for the diagnosis and therapy of diseases of the eye, the ocular adnexa, the optic nerve and the visual pathway. Together with the Research Institute of Ophthalmology, the University Eye Hospital forms the Department of Ophthalmology, which is one of the 13 medical centers of excellence in the state of Baden-Württemberg and among them the only one for ophthalmology. Planning and conducting preclinical and clinical research are as much a part of the clinic's expertise as the implementation of innovative developments of new therapeutic procedures. The University Eye Hospital offers its patients medical care tailored to their individual needs and has at its disposal new forms of treatment and surgical techniques so that highly complex interventions can be carried out. Every year, 60,000 patients receive advice and treatment in the outpatient clinics and consultation hours. The eye clinic performs 20,000 outpatient and inpatient operations annually.

Residency

Specialist training

For the German specialist training at the University Eye Hospital Tübingen you have to adapt to the assistant rotation system of the University Eye Hospital (Curriculum Ophthalmology). The staff senior physicians will make the allocation. You will find out a quarter of a year in advance to which area you will rotate next in order to meet the requirements of the LÄK Baden-Württemberg for specialist training in ophthalmology. Changes may occur due to operational reasons. As a rule, you will have passed through all the prescribed wards for specialist training in about 5 to 6 years.

Surgical training is excluded during the entire specialist training. At the University Eye Hospital Tübingen, practical skills in ophthalmological surgery are only acquired as a specialist.
