About our fellowshipsOhio State Ophthalmology faculty believe that fellowship training should be taken after residency out of a desire for subspecialty practice, academic pursuits or research, rather than to supplement areas missed during a residency program. In order to be eligible for any of our fellowship programs, all applicants must be US citizens, graduates of an ACGME-accredited residency program and must be eligible to obtain a full medical license in the State of Ohio. The Department of Ophthalmology offers four different ophthalmology fellowship programs. These programs all offer numerous clinical, surgical, research and teaching opportunities.
Cornea and External Disease Fellowship
Vitreoretinal Disease and Surgery Fellowship
Medical Retina and Ocular Oncology Fellowship
In order to be considered for any fellowship, all applicants must be a U.S. citizen and must be able to obtain a FULL and unrestricted medical license in the State of Ohio prior to starting a fellowship. View and review all licensure requirements before applying.
