Vitreoretinal Fellowship Training Program

Countless fellows have been trained at Vitreous-Retina-Macula Consultants of New York in conjunction with Columbia University and North Shore LIJ/ Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital.

The medical-surgical retina fellowship (San Francisco Match ID#4084) consists of a 2-year program under the guidance of Dr. Lawrence Yannuzzi and Dr. Stanley Chang. The vitreoretinal-surgical fellowship provides a wide and balanced spectrum of surgical experience, including macular surgery, primary retinal reattachment surgery by pneumatic retinopexy, minimal buckling, or vitrectomy, posterior ocular trauma, advanced diabetic retinopathy, and complex retinal detachments.

The fellow also acquires extensive experience interpreting fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography, B-scan ultrasonography, and optical coherence tomography on all available platforms, including prototypes in the context of clinical studies.

In addition to assisting in the care of a mix of private and service patients at these institutions, the fellow will have the opportunity to manage a retinal-vitreous practice and develop surgical skills at NYU/Bellevue Hospital. Ample research opportunities exist.

An established 1-year medical retina fellowship under the preceptorship of Dr. K. Bailey Freund that offers a comprehensive curriculum in medical diseases of the retina and vitreous utilizing expertise with multiple institutions is available as well through the San Francisco match (ID#4566).

In addition to patient care responsibilities, fellows are required to participate in clinical research, teach residents and staff, and present cases and research at various clinical and scientific conferences.

At any point in time, as many as 5 retinal specialists from overseas are visiting VRMNY to conduct research under the guidance of our physicians. International faculty interested in such sabbaticals may contact any of the VRMNY physicians they are interested in working with.
