This one-year comprehensive training program in the diagnosis and medical and surgical management of uveitis offers residents exposure to a high volume of complicated ocular inflammatory disease cases, as well as the highest surgical volume of complicated ocular inflammatory disease cases of all US uveitis fellowship programs. With direct and daily access to the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai’s (NYEE) faculty, who are world recognized leaders in the field, fellows will develop expertise in using a full range of immunomodulatory therapies for all aspects of inflammatory and autoimmune disorders and have an opportunity to collaborate with other subspecialty fellows (retina, glaucoma, cornea), especially in complicated cases requiring multispecialty management. Fellows are invited to participate in departmental research initiatives and are encouraged to present at local, national, and international academic conferences such as ARVO, AAO, and ASRS.
