The Uveitis and Medical Retina Fellow is expected to publish at least two original research manuscripts and one review manuscript/book chapter in which he/she is the first author during the fellowship. The fellow is also encouraged to contribute and be co-authors in other studies and manuscripts led by other members of the Byers and Stanford Faculty.
The Fellow is also expected to present his/her work at one or more national or international congress during the fellowship. Travel support to present at the Congress will be provided by the fellowship program.
Throughout the 12 months of fellowship, the fellow will also engage and participate in various clinical trials and studies being conducted at Byers whenever possible. The fellow will be encouraged to familiarize with the protocol writing, IRB submission, and clinical trial participation processes, as it is hoped that the fellow will be able to lead independent research and conduct trials and studies after he/she finishes the fellowship and begins his/her career at the next institution.
The successful fellow is expected to communicate with one or more uveitis or retina faculty members at Byers before he/she begins the fellowship to learn and prepare for a potential research project, as he/she may not have time to complete the projects if he/she waits to begin in July of the fellowship year.
