Vitreoretinal Surgery Fellowship

The Indiana University School of Medicine vitreoretinal surgery fellowship is a two-year clinical fellowship providing a broad training in all aspects of medical and surgical retina. This is a newly re-established program with goals to provide a comprehensive training experience in the diagnosis and management of a broad spectrum of vitreoretinal diseases. Fellows will closely work with the faculty in the clinics and operating rooms. Fellows will gain experience and develop expertise in the diagnosis of a variety of medical retinal diseases in pediatric and adult populations and will master all aspects of advanced retinal imaging and procedures.

IU School of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology serves as a tertiary referral center for the state of Indiana, and fellows will gain experience in outpatient retinal procedures.

A strong emphasis is placed on surgical training and fellows will gain broad experience in all aspects of vitreoretinal surgical procedures.

Fellows are strongly encouraged to actively participate in clinical or basic science research projects. Under the mentorship of our faculty, fellows will have ample opportunities to participate in different research projects.

Our program has a strong emphasis on teaching, and fellows will actively participate in lectures, Grand Rounds, case conferences, journal clubs and retinal imaging conferences. Presentation of original research projects at national conferences is strongly encouraged and supported by the department.
