Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Fellowship

The academic goal of the Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Service of Massachusetts Eye and Ear, simply stated, is to train superb ocular immunologists. During the fellowship, fellows will care for a wide variety of patients with complex disorders, which will enable them to develop advanced diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical skills for the entire spectrum of ocular inflammatory disease diagnosis and management. Fellows participate in all aspects of patient care including uveitis clinic, retina clinic, cornea clinic, rheumatology clinic, and surgery.

Overview of the Fellowship

The Ocular Immunology and Uveitis Fellowship is an intensive one-year program, during which approximately 80% of the time is dedicated to clinical care; the remaining time is available for research. Fellows can spend this time performing clinically-oriented research, which may include writing reviews, case series, and book chapters.

The fellow’s responsibilities (broadly defined) include examining patients in the various assigned clinics, taking call, providing consults to Massachusetts General Hospital inpatients, responding to patient requests for information or assistance with medical needs, being available for emergency visits, assisting in surgery, and other tasks as required to provide comprehensive patient care. The fellows are also required to attend lectures and deliver case presentations in Grand Rounds as needed.

All applicants must be eligible for a full medical license per the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine. International medical graduates must also be eligible for an H1B visa (eligibility includes passing all 3 steps of the USMLE and reporting results to MEEI prior to the Match deadline). The requirements of full licensure can be viewed on the mass.gov website:
