The mission of the Tufts Eye Alumni Association (TEAA) is to foster a sense of community amongst eye care professionals who are graduates of Tufts schools and/or Tufts affiliated ophthalmology teaching programs. TEAA will organize educational and social activities for residents, fellows, medical students and alumni. Additionally it will serve as a clearinghouse to keep alumni informed about activities/achievements of other alumni and updates on the New England Eye Center and the Tufts Department of Ophthalmology. TEAA will strive to provide both financial and advisory leadership to support the educational and research missions of the Department of Ophthalmology. TEAA’s initial efforts will be to establish an endowed professorship for the Director of Ophthalmic Education in order to insure that future residents and fellows get the proper mentorship.
