Cornea Fellowship

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - In light of the public health challenges brought about by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), all current residency and fellowship interviews will follow a virtual format. We appreciate your understanding!

This is a one-year clinical fellowship equally weighted between anterior segment surgery, postoperative management, medical external disease and refractive surgery. Surgical experience will be gained in the area of keratoplasty as well as a variety of other surgical procedures, including surgery for pterygia, corneal and conjunctival tumors and refractive surgery. Fellows participate directly in the medical and surgical management of a broad spectrum of medical corneal disorders including microbial keratitis, endophthalmitis, ocular surface disorders, and autoimmune keratopathies. Clinical research and publication is encouraged. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the other fellowships offered throughout the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. Fellowship positions are filled through SF Match and we utilize the Central Application Service. Please contact the matching program at SF Match.

Please note: You must have a Florida State Medical License before beginning your Fellowship. You must have passed all 3 parts of the USMLE for a Florida License and have spent 2 years training in the United States under direct physician supervision.

Deadline for receipt of application is September 15th.
