About the fellowship
We offer a one-year fellowship with comprehensive training in pediatric ophthalmology and pediatric and adult strabismus.
Fellows will work closely with five pediatric ophthalmologists in the Pediatric Eye Clinic of the University of Wisconsin, which has a volume of more than 7,000 subspecialty outpatient visits per year. Referrals and consultations from our large Pediatric Department (which includes all relevant subspecialties) provides for a wide variety of pediatric eye problems seen in our clinic. In addition, our clinic has a wide national and international referral base for treating complex strabismus in children and adults.
Additional expertise will be gained in the field of ophthalmic genetics through participation in a monthly inherited retinal degeneration clinic and additional research opportunities (oculocutaneous albinism, myopia, primary congenital glaucoma, and human embryonic stem cells).
Fellows will be involved in 400 or more surgical cases, many as primary surgeon. Surgical procedures include a wide variety of strabismus. In addition, fellows will participate in the evaluation and surgical management of retinopathy of prematurity, cataract, glaucoma, ptosis and nasolacrimal procedures.
The fellow’s close interaction with residents, medical students, and orthoptic students includes both informal and didactic teaching. Fellows are expected to initiate and complete an independent clinical research project appropriate for presentation at a national meeting during their fellowship.
