The core of the neuro-ophthalmology fellowship is patient examination under staff supervision. Outpatients are drawn from the community practices of the tri-state area (Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana), as well as the clinics of the University of Michigan Medical Center. The inpatients are drawn from the Medical Center Hospitals and the VA Hospital situated five minutes away. The Neuro-ophthalmology Service has responsibility both for neuro-ophthalmology patients and for general ophthalmology inpatient consultation. The fellow's responsibilities initially are similar to those of the ophthalmology resident, but as the fellowship progresses, in time the fellow is given graduated supervision. The fellow is expected to devote considerable time and effort to formal teaching and either clinical or basic neuroscience research. Opportunities are available to join ongoing projects or initiate a new project. The fellowship is open to graduates of accredited training programs in either ophthalmology or neurology. An on-site interview is a prerequisite.
