Overview

The Fellowship in Uveitis and Medical Retina at the Byers Eye Institute (BEI) is designed to train specialists in the management of uveitis and ocular inflammatory diseases, and retinal vascular diseases.  The fellow will learn how to utilize proper testing and assessment to diagnose the diseases, including surgical approaches. Subsequently, the fellow will familiarize and be competent in employing a range of therapeutic options, medical and surgical, including corticosteroids, immunomodulatory and immunosuppressive agents. In addition, as BEI is a highly academically oriented institution, the fellow will also be expected to be significantly involved in research activities and clinical trials as well as scholarly activities such as scientific presentations and manuscript publications. This program also expects a fellow to participate actively in imaging research at BEI to gain knowledge in the proper use of ophthalmic diagnostic devices, which form the cardinal axis of clinical and experimental ophthalmology.   

Graduates of the Stanford Uveitis Fellowship Program are eligible for membership in the Foster Ocular Immunology Society.
