The Cornea fellowship program at Ophthalmic Consultants/The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary is recognized nationally as an outstanding educational opportunity for careers in either academic medicine or private subspecialty practice. The goal of this AUPO-FCC approved fellowship is to train the individual to successfully manage a referral cornea practice in an academic or private setting.

During the fellowship, fellows will care for a wide variety of patients with complex disorders of the anterior segment that will enable them to develop advanced diagnostic and surgical skills for the entire spectrum of corneal and external disorders. The fellowship is comprehensive in scope and provides clinically relevant research opportunities and extensive "hands on" surgery. The fellow will perform surgery with increasing autonomy as skills progress.

The surgical experience will include exposure to numerous cornea procedures including penetrating keratoplasty, DSEK, keratoprosthesis surgery, ocular surface reconstruction, corneal trauma, and sutureless pterygium surgery. The fellow will have the opportunity to perform state-of-the-art cataract surgery, iris and scleral fixation of IOLs, and gain valuable experience with newer lens technology such as multifocal and toric IOLs. Refractive surgery opportunities (LASIK, PRK, and PTK) will also be available in our refractive surgery center.

The Cornea fellowship includes opportunities to attend and participate in national meetings such as the AAO, ASCR, and ARVO. The fellow can also take advantage of the full educational opportunities within the Department of Ophthalmology at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary (http://www.nyee.edu).

There are two clinical fellowship positions available each academic year. Interviews are conducted by invitation only. The Ophthalmic Consultants/New York Eye and Ear Cornea Fellowship program, participates in the Fellowship Matching Program sponsored by the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology.
