About Our Fellowship Program

Please note that ophthalmology fellowships are not ACGME approved fellowships, unlike our residency program. Cornea, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, retina, and uveitis fellowships are post residency faculty appointed (visiting instructors) credentialed positions, sanctioned through AUPO (Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology). Residencies must have been completed in the United States. Since a major portion of our fellowship training occurs at the Veteran's Administrative Medical Center, which is federally funded, we can only hire U.S. citizens for these paid positions.

If you are interested in observational-only fellowships for foreign graduates, please contact:

Anna.Reed@hsc.utah.edu or Erika.Ruiz@hsc.utah.edu in Moran's Global Outreach Division.
