Your training experience
As a fellow at Mayo Clinic, you'll have access to robust clinical, educational, and research resources. You'll find support both inside and outside of the campus to promote physical and mental wellness and ensure your work/life balance.
You'll have the opportunity to treat many community and tertiary referrals of complex glaucoma patients requiring aggressive IOP lowering with traditional and newer subconjunctival and cyclodestructive procedures, and you will become adept with the co-management of those cases with other ophthalmology subspecialties within our department as well as other specialties.
The program is accredited by the Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology Fellowship Compliance Committee (AUPO FCC).
The Glaucoma Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, launched in 2021. The one-year program is under the preceptorship of Drs. Syril Dorairaj (Glaucoma Program Director), Richard TenHulzen (Glaucoma), and Eric Eggenberger (Neuro-Ophthalmology) of Mayo Clinic's Department of Ophthalmology in Florida.
