Members of the full-time faculty of the glaucoma service include Drs. Richard Parrish, Steven Gedde, David Greenfield, Krishna Kishor, Arindel Maharaj, Sarah Wellik, Richard Lee, Elizabeth Hodapp, Peter Chang, and Anna Junk. As a Palm Beach Gardens glaucoma fellow, you will work primarily with Drs. Greenfield, Maharaj, and Kishor, although there will be opportunities to work with the other members of the glaucoma service in Miami.
The typical one-year fellowship consists of seeing private consultation patients in Palm Beach, and participating in surgery both at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Palm Beach Gardens and at the West Palm Beach VA Hospital. The fellows also spend one-half day weekly in a general ophthalmology practice as a member of our faculty, and there are several weekly conferences and teaching rounds within the department. Weekly Grand Rounds of the Department of Ophthalmology consist of presentations of cases by the residents and fellows with subsequent discussion. There is a separate weekly conference of the glaucoma fellows with the glaucoma faculty to discuss topics and journal articles of interest. These activities fill up nearly all of the week, but do leave time to pursue reading or individual research projects that a fellow may wish to undertake.
Each fellow does at least one small project in order to understand what goes into research and to learn to evaluate the literature better. The results of the research studies of every resident and fellow are presented in a two-day program held in June.
Fellowship positions are filled through the Ophthalmology Matching Program and we utilize the central application service. Please contact the matching program at SF Match.
