Program Overview

Heather Moss, MD, PhD is the director of the Neuro-Ophthalmology advanced training program. 

The neuro-ophthalmology division at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford is pleased to offer a one-year, AUPO FCC compliant neuro-ophthalmology advanced training program that is designed for physicians who have completed residency training in either ophthalmology or neurology at the time the program commences.

Activities will consist of outpatient care, inpatient consultation, didactic learning, including attendance at the Stanford Bay Area Ophthalmology Course, and presentation at national conferences such as the North American Neuro-ophthalmology Society (NANOS) annual meeting.

Training will be tailored to the participant's previous training and future interests, including opportunities for research and teaching. Upon completion of this training, participants will be broadly trained to diagnose and manage a variety of neuro-ophthalmic conditions.

The clinical neuro-ophthalmology faculty, consisting of Drs. Joyce Liao, Heather Moss, and Shannon Beres will provide supervision.  Affiliated faculty Dr. Khizer Khaderi will also contribute to education.

Applications for the 2024 program year are due September 15, 2023.
