    The Department of Ophthalmology at UPMC is a nationwide technology leader and has a long track record of developing and implementing new devices, techniques and software, especially in Glaucoma. Diagnosis and treatment decisions are increasingly technology and data-analysis driven, in the area of glaucoma, exceeding and supplementing the abilities of an unaided human observer. You will have the unique opportunity to master these new tools already before they become available on a larger scale. This allows you to efficiently pursue research projects during your fellowship with us.

    The vision of our Chair, Dr. Joel Schuman, who is both a Professor of Ophthalmology and of Bioengineering, permeates our department, giving the translational and basic research activities here immediacy and weight: there are 12 investigators with R01 grants in our department and 17, in total, who contribute to a Vision Core research grant. Patient care, education and research are seamlessly integrated and physically located in the same building, in the Eye and Ear Institute. The lab space for research alone exceeds 20,000 sq ft in the main building.

    The tradition of UPMC's Glaucoma Service - to improve patient care by spearheading clinical and surgical technologies while also performing translational science - is continued under the leadership of the new Glaucoma Fellowship Director, Nils Loewen, MD, PhD who is also the Director of the Glaucoma and Anterior Segment Surgery and the Director of Health Information Technology.

    As our Glaucoma Fellow, you will become an active member of the Glaucoma Service, working closely with all full-time clinical glaucoma faculty Joel Schuman, MD, Ian Conner, MD, PhD, Nils Loewen, MD, PhD and Kimberly Miller, MD and the Glaucoma Resident in the clinical and surgical care of our glaucoma patients. The Clinical Glaucoma Fellowship at UPMC is a one-year program, usually beginning in July.
