Ophthalmology management services organization EyeCare Partners haslaunched a yearlong ophthalmology fellowship program that will provide training to residency graduates.
The advanced comprehensive ophthalmology fellowship will provide training to fellows in diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, surgical procedures and clinical research, according to a June 27 press release.
The ACOF was developed by the EyeCare Partners Innovation Center, which opened last fall. The new fellowship program will start in the fall of 2024.
It will be led by three ophthalmologists who will provide fellows with training and mentorship. Leading physicians include John Sheppard, MD, founder of Virginia Eye Consultants in Norfolk; Edward Meier, MD, surgeon at the Cincinnati Eye Institute; and Timothy Page, MD, surgeon at Oakland Ophthalmic Surgery in Birmingham, Mich.
