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 comprehensive training program in the diagnosis and medical-surgical management of uveitis under the direction of Drs. Janet Davis, Thomas Albini, Dr. Stephanie Llop and Dr. Guillermo Amescua. The program is compliant with the AUPO FCC guidelines for Uveitis Fellowships. Fellows work closely with the faculty in the clinics to develop expertise in the diagnosis and management of infectious and non-infectious uveitis, using a broad range of therapeutic immunosuppression, intravitreal and periocular treatments, and modern diagnostic techniques, including state-of-the-art anterior and posterior segment imaging. Although this is not a surgical training program, fellows will be exposed to a broad range of surgeries for diagnosis of uveitis and management of uveitic complications, including diagnostic vitrectomy, drug delivery device placement, cataract and glaucoma surgeries, as they follow patients throughout their perioperative course. Academically, the fellow participates in teaching conferences and is actively encouraged to participate in clinical research. Fellows with prior or planned fellowship training in anterior or posterior segment surgery are preferred, but non-surgical medical uveitis trainees are also invited to apply. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the other fellowships offered through the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.
You should be aware that we participate in a matching program. Information and applications relating to the Fellowship Matching Program can be obtained from SF Match.
