Centralized Application Service (CAS)

A Centralized Application Service is available through the San Francisco Match for all Ophthalmology Fellowship subspecialties except for Pathology. The Central Application Service (CAS) distributes applications to residency and fellowship training programs online. 

The use of SF Match’s Central Application Service (CAS) is mandatory for both programs and applicants except Pathology. Applicants applying for Pathology subspecialties must register for the Match and contact programs directly to obtain application materials and procedures. Canadian programs are not required to utilize the CAS system. Applicants should check directly with the specific program directors for application requirements before applying through the CAS system.
