The Medical Retina Fellowship at the USC Roski Eye Institute provides comprehensive exposure to all aspects of medical retinal disease, including diagnostic evaluation, retinal pharmacotherapy, and an introduction to clinical research. This eye care fellowship provides outstanding preparation for individuals planning careers in private practice, academic ophthalmology, or as prelude to further surgical retinal training.
The USC Roski Eye Institute serves a diverse patient population, with considerable exposure to diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, and posterior segment uveitis. Clinical activities occur at both the USC Roski Eye Institute and the Macula Clinic at the LAC + USC Medical Center.
The exposure to advanced optical coherence tomography (OCT) technology is without parallel, encompassing swept source OCT, OCT angiography, and en-face OCT. Formal training in the conduct of retinal clinical trials is provided.
Forming meaningful, lasting relationships with patients is not only personally satisfying, but teaches important things about doctoring – patience, communication, and compassion.
