This is a one-year uveitis fellowship, which provides clinical training in all aspects of uveitis, including uveitic cataract surgery and medical management with immunosuppression.  Fellows will learn how to diagnose and manage diverse uveitic conditions, with an approximately even split between conditions primarily affecting the anterior and posterior segment.  There is also time set aside for either clinical or laboratory research. A second year, focusing more on research, may be available when appropriate. Ongoing research programs include clinical trials, epidemiologic projects, and laboratory-based studies in infectious and inflammatory ocular disease.
