    Training Opportunity Information

    Training Opportunity: Cornea Fellowship
    Subspecialty: Cornea/External Disease
    Focus: Clinical
    Description: There are two 12 month cornea fellowships offered each year, one beginning in February, one beginning in August. The fellowship has strong clinical and research components and provides an opportunity for comprehensive training in the fields of cornea and eye banking. Fellows will have substantial exposure to the diagnosis and medical management of corneal infections and ocular surface diseases, corneal transplantation surgery (PK, DALK, DSAEK, DMEK) and excimer laser surgery. There are two main consulting clinics each week with up to eight consultant staff attending, as well as a weekly keratoconus clinic and a monthly combined corneal/ocular immunology/plastics clinic for cases requiring joint care. There is also a weekly theatre list per fellow and fortnightly excimer laser/ CXL lists. In addition to sub-specialty clinics, Fellows will be rostered to shifts in our specialised Emergency Department. This is an excellent opportunity to maintain general ophthalmology skills, at the same time as providing a valuable educational resource to other medical staff working within the Department. On-call duties are 1:2.
