Department Chairman: Randall J Olson, MD, Distinguished Professor, CEO, John A. Moran Eye Center
Program Director: Jeff Pettey, MD, MBA, Associate Professor

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.

Emphases

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/Application Deadline

Interviews for 2022 will be held at the Moran Eye Center on the following date:

  • Saturday, October 29

Please apply through SF Match #4075.
