Clinical Observership

Clinical Observership Program for physicians (U.S. and International)

Bascom Palmer Eye Institute offers a Clinical Observership Program for select physicians from within the United States and abroad. The program focuses on enhancing knowledge in ophthalmic subspecialties through an observational tutorial program with no patient contact. Subspecialties include cornea, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, oculoplastics, pathology, pediatric ophthalmology and retina. As part of the clinical observership, visiting physicians are permitted to observe the activities of the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute faculty and lecturers which include surgery, scheduled conferences and Grand Rounds. Clinical observerships may have a duration from two days and up to four weeks. Please note that this is contingent upon approval and availability.

Please allow 3-6 months to process your international observer application and U.S. observer application.
