Neuro-Ophthalmology Fellowship

Neuro-Ophthalmology Fellowship Director: Bradley J. Katz, MD, PhD
Neuro-Ophthalmology Fellowship Associate Director: Meagan Seay, DO

About the Fellowship

We offer a one-year fellowship in neuro-ophthalmology at the John A. Moran Eye Center, ranked among the nation’s best hospitals for ophthalmology by U.S. News & World Report.

As part of University of Utah Health, we have outstanding opportunities for both ophthalmology and neurology-trained residents in neuro-ophthalmology. Our goal is for a fellow to practice neuro-ophthalmology ethically, thoughtfully, comprehensively, independently, and confidently through clinical work, research, and teaching. 

University of Utah Health is known for its high-quality care and research-driven treatment using the safest and most advanced techniques.

  • Application Deadline: October 13, 2024 
  • Interview Date: November 9, 2024

What Makes Our Fellowship Unique?

Our fellows have outstanding opportunities to see a wide variety of clinical neuro-ophthalmic abnormalities because we are the only tertiary care center in the Mountain West and the only neuro-ophthalmology academic group between Denver and San Francisco. Our patients come from the entire region, with many diverse neuro-ophthalmic conditions. This broad clinical experience will equip our fellow to practice in various settings, including academic and private practice.

Our fellows also have an opportunity to conduct research and present at the national North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANO). In addition, ample teaching opportunities exist within the departments of ophthalmology and neurology.

Ore-Ofe Adesina, MDF
"The Moran fellowship is special because of the opportunity to train with a group of world-class mentors who both inspire and support you to become the best neuro-ophthalmologist you can possibly be. They set a high bar of excellence and an example that is desirable of emulation. This ophthalmology department is world-class, and the Moran Eye Center is second to none."

Anastasia Neufeld, MD
"The Moran Eye Center fellowship was rich in experience and teaching from both neurology and ophthalmology trained neuro-ophthalmologists, and it provided unique opportunities to interact with colleagues across ophthalmology subspecialties. The fellowship was flexible enough to allow me to continue to pursue my other passion in ophthalmology—surgery—during my fellowship."
Anastasia Neufeld, MD Former Neuro-Ophthalmology Fellow

Surgical Training

We have opportunities for ophthalmology-trained fellows to combine their clinical fellowship with additional training in cataract surgery. We can also arrange opportunities for experiences in orbital and strabismus surgery. 



Due to licensing constraints, we can only consider applicants who have completed or will complete their training in an accredited U.S. or Canadian neurology or ophthalmology program.
