We accept two positions per year. As with most ophthalmology fellowship programs, this is NOT a PGY5 approved ACGME fellowship position, but a paid limited-term, visiting-instructor faculty position. It is, however, affiliated with an ACGME accredited Ophthalmology Residency Program and AUPO affiliated. Malpractice insurance will be provided by the University as well as medical, dental, and other benefits.
After beginning this fellowship, you will attend an orientation on the first working day after the July 4th holiday to learn the policies and procedures and requirements of the Moran Eye Center. This is a one-year position beginning July 1 through July 10 of the following year. Due to state regulations and the mandatory affiliation with the Veteran's Hospital, we can only accept U.S. citizens.
We provide a very busy clinical exposure to all aspects of glaucoma with a heavy emphasis on surgical treatment. A large number of glaucoma procedures as well as phacoemulsification will be part of this surgical experience.
The fellow will work closely with Norm A. Zabriskie, MD, Professor; Ike Ahmed, MD, FRCSC, Professor; Craig J. Chaya, MD, Associate Professor; Austin Nakatsuka, MD, Assistant Professor; Rachel Simpson, MD, Assistant Professor; and Brian Stagg, MD, MS, Assistant Professor.
Teaching responsibilities, as well as clinical research, will be part of this fellowship. We do NOT offer Academy interviews as we require you to view our wonderful facility, and our five glaucoma attendings do not attend academy at the same time.
Interviews for 2022 will be held at the Moran Eye Center on the following date:
- Saturday, October 29
Please apply through SF Match #4075.
If selected for this position, you will be required to obtain a Utah Medical License, a Utah Controlled Substance License, and a fee exempt DEA License. The total cost will be your responsibility. You will be required to obtain privileges with the University of Utah Hospital, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Primary Children’s Hospital. All fees for privileges will be reimbursed by the Department of Ophthalmology. University policy requires original receipts for reimbursement. We will work closely with you to meet these requirements.
Any questions can be directed to email@example.com. Thank you for your interest in the glaucoma fellowship program at the John A Moran Eye Center, University of Utah Health.
