Peter McDonnell, M.D., Chairman
The Wilmer Institute of The Johns Hopkins Hospital is the sponsoring institution of The Johns Hopkins Wilmer Training Program in Ophthalmology. The Wilmer Institute is the site of most of the residents' didactic programs (lectures, conferences and wet lab sessions). Supported by a full-time faculty numbering over 100, the resident rotates through 8 subspecialties throughout their 3 years of training. Wilmer draws patients from the local East Baltimore community as well as regional, statewide, national and international referrals. The Institute contains over 70,000 square feet of patient care space, including a practice surgical center, a minor surgical room, a General Eye Clinic and over 70 examination rooms among the various subspecialty divisions. Emergency eye patients are seen through the main Johns Hopkins Emergency Department, which contains two examination rooms dedicated to eye care. On certain rotations, residents may also join faculty at some of the Wilmer satellite locations. The majority of resident surgeries are performed in the Bendann Surgical Pavilion which consists of 7 fully equipped ophthalmic operating rooms and a femtosecond laser for laser assisted cataract surgery.
