Cornea Fellowship


The OHSU/Casey Eye Institute Cornea Fellowship is a one-year Cornea, External Disease and Refractive Surgery training program. The faculty include Winston Chamberlain, M.D., Ph.D., John Clements, M.D., Bryan Edginton, M.D., David Huang, M.D., PhD, and Afshan Nanji, M.D, M.P.H. Interests of the faculty include: refractive surgery (PRK, LASIK, and intracorneal ring segments), corneal transplantation (including various forms of lamellar transplantation), limbal stem cell transplantation, corneal and conjunctival tumors, and international ophthalmology.

Because of the faculty's wide range of interests, the Casey fellowship offers a unique spectrum of educational opportunities. Fellows participate directly in the medical management of patients in clinic and perform a wide range of external disease and corneal surgeries. The fellow will also perform LASIK and PRK as part of his/her clinical experience at the OHSU Casey Eye Institute; our current laser platforms are the femtosecond Intralase laser and the Allegretto Wavelight 500 excimer laser with topography-guided ablation technology. The Cornea, External Disease and Refractive Surgery Service is also well equipped for the diagnosis and treatment of all anterior segment disorders, with outstanding  diagnostic ultrasound and photographic services are adjacent to the clinic, multiple topography; tomograph and OCT systems; and confocal microscopy. The faculty are involved in clinical trials and NIH research grants, exposing the fellow to a variety of research opportunities. We believe that the candidate who successfully completes this fellowship will be proficient in penetrating and lamellar keratoplasty, including both anterior lamellar and endothelial keratoplasty; pterygium and tumor excision; anterior segment reconstruction; secondary intraocular lenses; and refractive surgery. The  graduating fellow will also be competent in the diagnosis and treatment of external diseases of the eye, including extraocular malignancies


Our next opening is in July 2018 and we will interview candidates in the fall of 2017. Application deadline is August 31, 2017.
