Glaucoma Fellowship

The clinical fellowship in glaucoma is a one-year fellowship designed to provide comprehensive subspecialty training in glaucoma diagnosis, management, and surgery. The objectives of the program are to enhance the clinical subspecialty skills of the post-residency graduate in the medical and surgical management of glaucoma and to provide experience in clinical or basic glaucoma research.

The one-year program is under the preceptorship of Drs. George Cioffi, Jeffrey M. Liebmann, Noga Harizman, Aakriti Garg Shukla, Ives Valenzuela, and Qing Wang at the Edward S. Harkness Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology.

Fellows are selected annually through the fellowship matching program. The fellows assist in the medical and surgical care of the attendings’ private patients, as well as participate fully in the care of glaucoma clinic patients at the Harkness Eye Institute. Fellows will be involved in and perform a wide variety of glaucoma and anterior segment surgical procedures throughout the year. In addition, fellows are responsible for participating in teaching activities and supervising the resident laser clinics. Fellows are expected to carry out at least one research project leading to publication and to present their research findings at local/ regional and national conferences and meetings.
