The University of Michigan Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus accepted its first fellow in 1989. Since that time we have trained over 50 full clinical and research fellows as well as over 30 International Observer Fellows from around the world. Many of our International Observer fellows have returned to his/her country in leadership positions of Pediatric Ophthalmology Programs, Subspecialty Societies, etc. We generally have 3 full USA trained clinical fellows and one International Observer Fellow at any one time- so international observers can learn from our fellows as well. We accept International Observer Fellows for periods of 1month to 1 year although 3-6 months is generally best for maximal training and experience in the wide diversity of clinical and surgical care provided. The goals and objectives of training for our fellows is in-depth and complete training in all aspects of pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus including extensive clinical experience in the clinic as well as operating room. International Observer fellows participate in all academic and clinical activities in the clinic and OR as well as all teaching lectures, grand rounds, sign out case discussions, and journal clubs. Fellows are exposed to the latest techniques in evaluation and treatment in a very busy tertiary referral pediatric ophthalmology clinic and operating room including exposure to complex adult and pediatric strabismus, nerve palsies, re-operations, Thyroid Eye Disease, etc, amblyopia, ophthalmic genetics, pediatric cataracts and glaucoma, pediatric ocular tumors, pediatric naso-lacrimal duct obstruction ROP, pediatric ocular prosthesis fitting and management, etc. Fellows who have completed this program are trained to serve as independent pediatric ophthalmologist in academic practices and clinical practices throughout the United States and around the world. The teaching staff involved in our fellowship program includes: Monte A. Del Monte, M.D., Skillman Professor of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Professor of Ophthalmology and Pediatrics at the University of Michigan. Dr. Del Monte completed his medical school and ophthalmology training at Johns Hopkins University and his fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus at the National Children's Hospital in Washington, D.C. He has been very involved in international ophthalmology medical teaching missions throughout the world. Dr. Steven M. Archer, M.D., Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Michigan completed his medical school and residency training at the University of Chicago and fellowship training at Indiana University. Our newest faculty member is Brenda Bohnsack, M.D., PhD who supervises our pediatric glaucoma program and Cagri Besirli, MD, PhD who runs our pediatric retina program. All training is conducted at the Kellogg Eye Center/ University of Michigan Hospital and Medical Center. Clinical Facilities include the large Skillman Pediatric Eye Clinic at the W. E. Kellogg Eye Center where most outpatient and clinical visits and most adult strabismus surgery is completed. Pediatric surgical cases are performed at the Mott Children’s Hospital which is part of the University of Michigan Medical Center. A hands-on surgical experience can be arranged after the fellow returns to his/her home country with a member of our faculty visiting your country to assist in evaluation and surgical treatment of interesting or complex cases in your own clinic and OR.
