Pediatric Ophthalmology Fellowship

Pediatric Ophthalmology Fellowship

The mission of the UC San Diego Ratner Children’s Eye Center Pediatric Ophthalmology fellowship is to train American and International Ophthalmologists to be outstanding Pediatric Ophthalmologists & Adult Strabismologists who excel clinically, surgically, ethically and morally. Our fellows will participate in research which positively impacts the field and develop an appreciation for the importance of global teaching and learning.

The UCSD Division of Pediatric Ophthalmology believes in fostering the clinical, surgical and research education of ophthalmologists throughout the world. To this end, we offer an International Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus. Our fellowship prepares graduates for careers in academic or cutting edge private pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus medicine. Fellows divide their time between research and the busy clinical and surgical practices of Dr. David Granet Professor/Director (co-Founder of the World Society of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus) and Dr. Shira Robbins, Associate Professor. International Fellows become integral members of the UCSD PedOphth Team.
