Observership Visitor

The Cole Eye Institute welcomes ophthalmologists from the United States and abroad to visit and observe clinical practice, including surgery. Typically, the observership/visitor experience ranges in duration from several days to a month. Within this framework, visiting ophthalmologists have the opportunity to arrange a program in any of our subspecialty areas that includes clinical experience, surgery and research. These areas include:

  • Cornea and external diseases and refractive surgery
  • Glaucoma
  • Neuro-ophthalmology
  • Ophthalmic oncology
  • Ophthalmic plastic and orbital surgery
  • Pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus
  • Uveitis
  • Vitreoretinal surgery

Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis and availability is at the discretion of the faculty. Visiting ophthalmologists are responsible for their financial support and health insurance while at the Cole Eye Institute.
