Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Fellowship (Minnesota)

Program description

The one-year Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Fellowship provides broad clinical and research experience in all areas of pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus, including:

  • Amblyopia
  • Pediatric strabismus
  • Pediatric glaucoma
  • Pediatric cataracts
  • Retinopathy of prematurity
  • Pediatric plastics and lacrimal surgery
  • Ophthalmic genetics
  • Adult strabismus

Extensive experience is provided in techniques such as complex adult strabismus (superior oblique surgery, adjustable sutures, faden procedures, transposition, Botox), intraocular surgery, evaluation and management of retinopathy of prematurity, pediatric neuro-ophthalmology, and ophthalmic plastics.

Our single fellow operates on all routine and complex ocular motility procedures (re-operations, lost muscles, muscle palsies, cyclovertical muscle procedures), as well as intraocular, plastic, external and laser procedures, and will perform more than 500 surgical procedures during the fellowship.

The goals of the Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Fellowship are to provide broad clinical and research experience in all areas of pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus, and to train future leaders in the field. Each fellow will obtain the necessary surgical and clinical skills to manage all areas of pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus.

Accreditation

The fellowship is accredited by the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology Fellowship Compliance Committee (AUPO FCC).
