The University of Iowa Cornea Fellowship has a long history of training fellows for academic careers as well as private practice. The wealth of clinical material and excellent referral system at the University of Iowa enables the fellow to care for an unusually broad range of patients and offers an excellent opportunity for acquiring skills and experience needed to master this subspecialty.

The Cornea Service at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, manages a wide variety of medical and surgical problems related to the anterior segment. The fellow will be given an opportunity to progress as rapidly as possible commensurate with their ability. The goal of the fellowship is to train the individual to successfully manage a referral cornea practice in an academic or private setting. In addition, the fellow’s teaching capabilities will be developed by working closely with residents and faculty.
