Ophthalmic Pathology Fellowship

The ophthalmic pathology fellowship program will last for one or two years, and involves microscopic and molecular studies of tumors and other diseases of the eye and orbit. The broad goal is to provide specialized education in ophthalmic pathology, including how to properly process surgical and autopsy specimens, diagnose a range of ocular and periocular diseases, formulate reports, and communicate effectively with colleagues and patients. Trainees will become familiar with gross examination and processing of resected globes and other ophthalmic specimens, as well as microscopic diagnosis and specialized testing. Trainees will be able to interact with ophthalmologists and pathologists, and learn to formulate pathological-imaging and clinical­ pathological correlations. Trainees are also encouraged to pursue research projects related to ophthalmic pathology.

To Apply

Ophthalmic Pathology fellows will have completed medical school as well as the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Steps 1, 2, and, if the applicant is eligible, 3. For an international graduate, verification of Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certification is required. Prior training in pathology or ophthalmology is helpful, but not required.
