Department of Ophthalmology | Pediatric Ophthalmology Fellowship Program

At Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School we offer three positions for one-year fellowships in pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus — one of them an international fellowship. Since 2008, the positions have been AUPO (Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology)-approved.

Dr. Gena Heidary is the Director of Ophthalmology Fellowship as well as Director of the Neuro-Ophthalmology Service.

International applicants should first contact the program coordinator, MaryKatherine Hart, by phone or email to find out the availability of fellowship positions well in advance of the usual deadline to determine whether an international, AUPO-approved position is open for the upcoming academic year.

Program goal

The goal of our training program is to provide broad and extensive clinical activity, academic stimulation and research experience in order to train the next generation of leaders in the field of pediatric ophthalmology.
