Vitreoretinal

There are two fellowship positions commencing in February and August.

The Vitreoretinal (VR) Unit at The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital is the largest VR unit in Australia. There are ten visiting Vitreoretinal surgeons and the clinical exposure is wide, ranging from acute management of retinal detachments and posterior segment trauma, to elective procedures such as macular surgery. In addition to the Vitreoretinal exposure, there is the Ocular Oncology Clinic, Medical Retina Clinic and liaison with the Ocular Immunology Clinic.

The fellows are expected to attend the clinics, assess patients and discuss and plan their management with the consulting staff. They will also participate in surgery, both as the operating surgeon or the assistant, depending on the complexity of the case and assess and admit acute problems.

Both the Vitreoretinal and Medical Retina Units are involved in ongoing research projects, which the fellows participate in and may be required to submit posters or papers for publication.
