We offer a one-year fellowship program in clinical neuro-ophthalmology. Each neuro-ophthalmology fellowship candidate’s application is evaluated promptly for interview consideration. After the interview, the fellowship is offered to qualified candidates. The neuro-ophthalmology fellowship does not participate in the Ophthalmology Fellowship Match.
The one-year program offers extensive clinical experience and opportunities for research. Neuro-ophthalmology fellows participate in the outpatient clinics of Drs. Byron Lam, Joshua Pasol, Carlos Mendoza, and Hong Jiang. Academic activities include weekly neuro-ophthalmology conference where diagnosis and management of cases of interest and journal articles are discussed, weekly grand rounds, resident lecture series (all aspects of ophthalmology including neuro-ophthalmology), and weekly neuroradiology conference (combined with neurosurgery and ENT).
Each fellow is required to initiate and complete one research project. The work is presented at the annual alumni meeting of the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, but may be submitted to national meetings, e.g., North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society. Travel funds for presentations are available.
Night and weekend neuro-ophthalmology on-call responsibilities are shared between the neuro-ophthalmology fellows and the second-year ophthalmology resident on the neuro-ophthalmology service. The on-call is taken at home, and on-call activities are specific to neuro-ophthalmology and generally light.
Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the other fellowships offered through Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. Benefits include personal and family health insurance, as well as payment of malpractice and Florida licensure fees.
