Advancement Prospects

Ophthalmologists advance in their careers by keeping current with new technologies, medications, and techniques. Publishing articles in respected medical journals, such as the Journal of the American Medical Association and Ophthalmology, is another avenue for professional enhancement. Many ophthalmologists combine research and teaching with a private practice. Others work as professors at universities or teaching hospitals and may advance to an administrative position as the head of a university or hospital ophthalmology department.
