Residency and Fellow Education

Education extends beyond the walls of our institution. We foster an environment where residents and fellows have the opportunity to interact with international partners at home, and spend time away for an emergent experience. Joining the UIC family means joining a network of collaborators and friends who embrace global outreach.

International Fellowships

The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) provides a list of ophthalmic training opportunities available around the world, including those here at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary.
