Duties and Activities


The fellow is in clinic or in surgery with the faculty Monday through Friday. 

Friday mornings are devoted to resident lectures where the fellow may participate and attend as desired in preparation for their oral boards.

The Cornea Fellow provides a one-hour conference on slit lamp cases once a month and participates in Cornea and Refractive Surgery Grand Rounds approximately six times a year.


Weekend and evening call involves covering the Cornea and External Disease call when faculty are out of town; this happens infrequently during the year with no more than 20 days required. The fellow has an obligation to cover Comprehensive/General Ophthalmology call twice a year to allow time for the residents to participate in the Ophthalmic Knowledge Assessment Program (OKAP)  Examination or the Cataract Surgery Course. 


The fellow attends any meetings of the Midwest Academic Refractive Consortium (MARC), whether it is held in Iowa City or one of the other centers, such as Kansas City with Dr. Durrie’s office.
