We will provide well-rounded training in vitreoretinal diseases in a supportive and respectful environment.

The first year will be spent in the clinic and operating room with the retina faculty being exposed to the full range of disease processes in retina surgery and uveitis. In the second year, the fellow will be exposed to more complex retina surgery and assuming greater responsibility in decision making and patient care.

Fellows will gain mastery of all major vitreoretinal diseases and surgical procedures.
