    Training Opportunity Information

    Training Opportunity: Neuro-Ophthalmology Fellowship
    Subspecialty: Neuro-Ophthalmology/Orbit
    Focus: Both Clinical and Research
    Description: We offer a one-year, AUPO FCC compliant neuro-ophthalmology fellowship that is designed for U.S. physicians who have completed residency training in either ophthalmology or neurology at the time the fellowship commences. Activities will consist of outpatient care, inpatient consultation, didactic learning including attendance at the Bay Area Ophthalmology Course, and presentation at national conferences such as the North American Neuro-ophthalmology Society (NANOS) annual meeting. Training will be tailored to the fellow’s previous training and future interests including opportunities for research and teaching. The neuro-ophthalmology faculty, consisting of Drs. Liao, Moss, Beres and Cooper, will provide supervision. Upon completion of this training, fellows will be broadly trained to diagnose and manage a variety of neuro-ophthalmic conditions. We also have up to two funded clinical or basic research postdoctoral fellowship positions available in neuro-ophthalmology for those with M.D. or Ph.D. U.S. citizenship is not required. We are currently actively recruiting for these positions and can provide more details upon request. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please send a cover letter and CV to the fellowship director Dr. Liao (yjliao@stanford.edu) or Barbara Bartlett (bbartlet@stanford.edu@stanford.edu) and ask for further information.
