I know allo optho programs match through sfmatch not NRMP - how do AOA optho residencies match? Is it a process separate from the regular AOA match? Do AOA optho programs look at undergrad grades and MCAT scores as sfmatch programs do? Thanks.

Typically osteoapthic physicians participate in the SF Match initially as medical students. During December of the internship year there are approximately nine programs which interview candidates for a PG-Y 2 ophthalmology position at their sites.
This is typically for less than 20 positions at my last estimation. Let me know if this helps in any way, and certainly if you would like more details or information please contact me.
