The Cataract fellowship begins in February each year.

The Fellow will be an integral part of Surgical Ophthalmology Service (SOS).  The Cataract Fellow will be exposed to and trained in current state-of-the-art advanced diagnostic, medical, and surgical techniques in the management of anterior segment disorders. 

There are three or four outpatient clinics and two operating lists each week; these are mostly supervised by consultant ophthalmologists but may also include including some fellow-only clinics and lists after orientation and assessment.

The fellows are expected to actively undertake research and publish during their fellowship and be involved in education and supervision of junior doctors. In addition, fellows also participate in the Emergency Department rosters.
