USC Roski Eye Institute residents and fellows have the opportunity to train with surgeons from Eyesthetica. As a part of this collaboration, the USC Roski Eye Institute and Eyesthetica have established an American Society of Ophthalmic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) fellowship, which will educate future oculo-facial plastic surgeons in state-of- the-art functional eye plastic surgery and cosmetic facial surgery, and provide a combination of academic and private practice experience.
The even-year fellowship under the leadership of Dr. Michael Burnstine, adjunct professor of ophthalmology will dovetail with the odd-year ASOPRS fellowship under the direction of Dr. Steven Dresner, adjunct professor of ophthalmology. The joint USC Roski Eye Institute-Eyesthetica fellowship program will be further augmenting by training under the mentorship of USC Roski Eye Institute physicians Sandy Zhang-Nunes, MD, assistant professor of clinical ophthalmology and Jonathan Kim, MD, associate professor of clinical ophthalmology. In addition to training residents at LAC+USC Medical Center Department of Ophthalmology, Drs. Burnstine, Dresner, Erb and Samimi participate in the USC Oculoplastics Journal Club.
