Glaucoma Research Pre-Residency Fellowship

About the Fellowship

Thank you for your interest in the Moran Glaucoma Research Fellowship. 

The fellow will work closely with the Moran Glaucoma Division, whose members have a wealth of experience with clinical trials, investigator-initiated projects, retrospective reviews, health services research, basic science work, and publications.

The fellow will learn the nuances of glaucoma research, including literature review, design, IRB approval, recruitment, chart reviews, biostatistics, database management, manuscript preparation, and delivering presentations at national/international meetings. Fellows will be involved in multiple projects involving glaucoma and anterior segment surgery. These research projects will involve human/animal subjects along with experience in analyzing large data sets like Medicare claims data, Utah Population Database, and Epic/iCentra/CPRS EMRs.


Applicants should either have an MD or DO degree. In addition to your resume, which you may have already forwarded, please send the following: a personal statement, three letters of reference, US-MLE steps 1, 2, or 3 scores, and any ECFMG certificates if applicable. If it is more convenient, you may simply forward your central application match packet.

This glaucoma fellowship is a wonderful opportunity to gain valuable knowledge in ophthalmology along with ample opportunities for publications and presentations at national/international meetings. The basic stipend is approximately $30,000 per year, depending on experience.
