The Department of Neurology at Indiana University School of Medicine offers a one-year fellowship in neuro-ophthalmology. Neuro-ophthalmology is a subspecialty bridging the knowledge and clinical care gap between the specialties of neurology and ophthalmology. The subspecialty encompasses vision disorders involving the brain and cranial nerves.
Patients with neuro-ophthalmic disorders frequently require extensive and time-consuming clinical evaluations. These patients clearly benefit from subspecialty expertise in the management of their conditions and to help prevent harm. Specialists are in high-demand as there are few neuro-ophthalmologists in the United States, with very few fellowship-trained neuro-ophthalmologists currently practicing in the state of Indiana.
Applicants must be US citizens or have permanent resident status and be eligible for licensure in Indiana. Applicants will need to be on track to successfully complete an ACGME-accredited ophthalmology or neurology residency program in the United States before the start of their neuro-ophthalmology fellowship.
