Fellowship

NJ Retina Vitreoretinal Surgical Fellowship

NJ Retina is pleased to invite applicants for a 2-year vitreoretinal surgical fellowship training program. Interested applicants should apply through the San Francisco Match (www.SFMatch.org). One fellow will be selected annually.

Retina fellows will benefit from a high surgical case volume at NJ Retina. Our care center is comprised of 9 retina surgeons who operate at three centers: the Ambulatory Surgery Pavilion of the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, NJ; the Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Hospital Operating Room also in New Brunswick; and the Southern Monmouth Medical Center in Lakewood, NJ. The retina fellow is expected to be involved in surgical cases on a daily basis.

Fellows will also receive comprehensive training in medical retina. Subspecialty rotations are present for electro-retinography / retinal dystrophies; ocular oncology; pediatric retina; and uveitis.

Retina fellows will have ample opportunity to participate in research. Each fellow is allotted a half day per week of academic time. The faculty of NJ Retina are heavily involved in a multitude of independent research projects as well as industry-sponsored clinical trials. Fellows are encouraged to attend regional and national retina meetings.

Fellows are allotted 3 weeks of paid vacation per year plus an additional week for meetings / continuing medical education / job interviews. Additional meeting days may be granted for first author paper or poster presentations at major meetings.
