Glaucoma

The Glaucoma unit has two fellowship positions each year, one beginning in February and one in August.

The fellowship is aimed at candidates intending to pursue a career as a glaucoma subspecialist. The Glaucoma Unit provides tertiary referral care for glaucoma patients in Victoria. There are three subspecialty glaucoma clinics and two glaucoma operating sessions per week. Fellows will participate actively in the medical and surgical management of patients, glaucoma teaching and the supervision of trainees.

Fellows also have dedicated research time and are expected to participate in clinical or basic science research projects. The fellows are expected to be involved in education and supervision of junior trainee registrars and participate in the Emergency Department and on-call rosters.
