The MUSC Department of Ophthalmology currently offers three fellowship programs— Pediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus, Glaucoma, and Cornea & Refractive Surgery.
The 12-month Storm Eye Institute fellowships are designed to ensure that participants develop the knowledge base, diagnostic reasoning, and clinical and surgical skills necessary to provide high quality and ethical ophthalmic care. Our fellowship programs are designed to provide a clinical and surgical learning environment that consistently builds skill and confidence while emphasizing outstanding patient care, professionalism, interpersonal skills, and community service, all of which shape tomorrow’s highly effective and ethical ophthalmologists.
Residents, fellows, and attendings at the MUSC Storm Eye Institute have a unique opportunity to learn ophthalmic surgical techniques while bringing eye care to underserved international communities. Twice a year, a team from Storm Eye travels to Belize to perform surgeries in a learning environment. The International Rotation Elective was created in 2016 to provide care to those in need in other countries. This international opportunity is instrumental in the education of residents and fellows. At the completion of their training they will become leaders in medicine and in our ‘global village.’
