Pathology welcomes new Ophthalmic Fellowship Program

July 2020

The new Ophthalmic ACGME accredited fellowship program is a great addition to the other excellent clinical fellowship programs offered by Stanford Pathology. The program will be directed by Jonathan Lin with Donald Born, Peter Egbert, and Ryan Basham as supporting faculty members. Dr. David Wilson will be tentatively  joining the program  in 2021.

Ophthalmic pathology expertise is in great demand at academic medical centers with the increase in specialized clinical eye institutes and increasingly sophisticated surgical and medical treatments for eye diseases. At Stanford, we offer a unique fellowship program in ophthalmic pathology that provides cutting-edge training in diagnosis of eye diseases from ocular, orbital, and adnexal biopsies and surgeries. Our program draws upon the wealth of ophthalmic surgeries performed at the Stanford Hospital, Byers Eye Institute, and VA Palo Alto Healthcare System.  Our program receives advanced consultative material from private hospitals, medical examiners, as well as major VA hospitals throughout California (Greater Los Angeles VA network, VA San Diego, VA Long Beach, etc). These provide comprehensive exposure to virtually all types of ocular tissue specimens, surgeries, and pathology manifestations of eye diseases. These also provide an unparalleled range of tissue-based research opportunities to investigate the cellular and molecular pathomechanisms of eye diseases.
