Ophthalmologists specializing in pediatric ophthalmology undertake this intensive fellowship after their medical school, internship, and ophthalmology residency training have been completed. It is the pinnacle of the medical educational process and provides the basis for a meaningful career in pediatric ophthalmology. We recognize this and strive to provide an outstanding training program. We accept one United States fellow and two to four international fellows per year. Fellows are selected on the basis of their academic credentials and personal character. Preference will be for applicants who will return to underserved areas, and for those with clinical research and teaching aspirations.
This Fellowship Program is a one-year program that has been approved and is certified and monitored by the American Association of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS). Training includes both hands on experience and didactic sessions. The fellow will have personalized interaction with program faculty, concentrating on clinical and surgical experience (with a strong attention to surgical technique). The average number of surgical cases during the fellowship year is over 200. Education emphasizes clinical acumen, surgical skills, research, and the need for practicing humanistic medicine.
