This is an AUPO accredited one-year fellowship with one new fellow matching every year. The fellow will work under, the direction of Drs. Gibran S Khurshid, Jingua Chen, Jonathan Hu and Aresh Maleki for a one-year medical retina fellowship beginning in July 2023. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the other fellowships offered through department of Ophthalmology.

This medical retina fellowship will concentrate on the diagnosis and treatment of non-surgical retinal diseases. Emphasis will be placed on evaluation and treatment of age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, vascular retinal occlusive diseases, inflammatory retinal diseases, intraocular lymphoma and inherited retinal degenerations. Competency in the use and interpretation of fluorescein and ICG angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT+OCTA), ultrasonography, and electrophysiological tests, as well as on performing medical retina clinic procedures (Lasers, PDT, TTT) will be achieved during this year. This is a new concept of hybrid medical retina fellowship. Clinically, the fellow will have opportunities to do trauma call and optional cataract surgery and 25/27 gauge vitreous biopsies.

The purpose of this fellowship is to create a competent medical retina specialist who can perform as comprehensive ophthalmologist as well. Academically the medical retina fellow will participate and moderate OCT/fluorescein conferences, vitreoretinal conferences, and grand rounds. The fellow will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing clinical research studies and initiate new clinical trials of their own.
