Vitreoretinal Surgery Fellowship

This two year Fellowship program provides a balanced and extensive educational experience in both the medical and surgical aspects of retinal disease. We have an equal blend of primary and tertiary referral retinal disease. The following areas are included in the surgical training program: vitreoretinal surgery, primary and complex retinal detachment repair, scleral buckling, management of complications of anterior segment surgery, trauma management. The

Fellowship includes care of uveitis, ocular tumors, and pediatric retina. In the clinic setting Fellows act as mentors to our residents and medical students. They will learn and teach examination techniques, photocoagulation, and retinal imaging including retinal angiography ultrasonography, optical coherence tomography and angiography, and interpretation of electrophysiology. Fellows participate as investigators in Clinical trials and will conduct collaborative research with our faculty. Educational activities include leading weekly Retina Case conference, and participating in Imaging conference, Journal clubs, and Grand Rounds.
