The Cornea, Anterior Segment, and Refractive Surgery Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine consists of one year of post-residency training in the Department of Ophthalmology under the direction of Drs. Masih Ahmed, Zaina Al-Mohtaseb, M. Bowes Hamill, Sumitra Khandelwal, Douglas D. Koch, Stephen C. Pflugfelder, and Mitchell P. Weikert. Two positions are available each year for the period from July 7 through July 6.
Fellows initiate and complete an independent investigative clinical project and present their results at a national meeting. They also participate in data collection and patient care related to ongoing clinical trials.
Career Planning: What paths do our graduating fellows take?
Over the 18 years of our fellowship, 16 graduating fellows have taken academic positions, and 20 have joined subspecialty private practices. Nearly everyone has secured their first choice. We support our fellows in their career aspirations and, with seven of us serving as their mentors, we have been extensive contacts throughout the country.
