We offer a 1 or 2 year program for either neurologists or ophthalmologists, especially those who already have some clinical neuro-ophthalmology training and would like research experience.

The clinical exposure comprises two clinics a week, one of which is full-time neuro-ophthalmology and the other of which is divided between neuro-ophthalmology and a multi-disciplinary neuro-otology (dizzy) clinic. There is also an active in-patient consultation service, which averages 2 to 3 patients per week.

The fellowship offers a research laboratory that has a magnetic search coil for recording eye movements, computers with back projection screens for displaying psychophysical stimuli, and a work station for processing functional MRI. Psychophysical research is done in collaboration with the Vision Research group in the department of Psychology at Harvard University.
