Learn From the Best

The Glaucoma Fellowship offers a unique opportunity to work with a large faculty who have extensive clinical experience and academic expertise. The Glaucoma Service, led by David S. Friedman, MD, MPH, PhD, includes some of the most well-known glaucoma specialists in the world. Our faculty have trained at premier institutions, including Mass. Eye and Ear, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Duke Eye Center, Wills Eye Hospital, and Wilmer Eye Institute, to name a few. Lucy Shen, MD, leads the fellowship and is committed to ensuring that fellows have the best training experience available to become future leaders in the field.


Unparalleled Clinical Training

Fellows learn how to manage the most difficult glaucoma cases, have opportunities to engage in research, and will have the support of our faculty in their career development. They are directly involved in clinical decision making and the surgical care of patients.

Fellows will:

    • Work with attendings in outpatient glaucoma clinics
    • Operate frequently, performing the entire range of glaucoma surgeries
    • Perform glaucoma lasers
    • Teach residents and other students who rotate through the service
    • Work with residents in the Mass. Eye and Ear Emergency Department
    • Provide consultation for inpatients at Mass General Hospital
    • Participate in educational meetings, including journal clubs, weekly faculty discussions, and national conferences

Alumni of the program have become glaucoma service directors, department chairs, and medical school deans. Our trainees are also well-represented within the American Glaucoma Society, the Glaucoma Research Society, and the American Ophthalmological Society.


Accreditation

This fellowship is accredited by the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology Fellowship Compliance Committee (AUPO FCC).
