NJRetina is pleased to offer a 2-year medical and surgical retina training program in collaboration with the Rutgers Medical School Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. The fellowship is accredited by the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology (AUPO). Applications for the fellowship are accepted through SFMatch.org. One fellow is selected every two years.
The NJRetina fellowship provides rigorous vitreoretinal surgical training with a high volume of cases. With a faculty:fellow ratio in excess of 10:1, fellows are in the operating room nearly every weekday.
The fellowship has a comprehensive didactic backbone with regular grand rounds and imaging conferences in conjunction with the ophthalmology residency program. Subspecialty rotations are present for dedicated experience in ocular oncology, electroretinography / heritable retinal diseases, and pediatric retina. There is opportunity for additional subspecialty rotations for interested fellows including international and/or humanitarian retina rotations.
Fellows are granted one half academic day every week, averaged, to pursue study and academic research projects. Fellows are mentored to publish original research and present at the podium at national meetings. Additionally, fellows serve as sub-investigators on a number of national and international multi-center clinical trial.
For any additional inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact the NJRetina Fellowship Director, Dr. Howard Fine MD MHSc.
