Since 2003, the New England Eye Center has offered a 1-year fellowship to a medical student interested in pursuing OCT research, in collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. James Fujimoto at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The research involves the clinical application of innovative OCT technologies in patients at NEEC.
The student has the opportunity to design, initiate, and complete clinical studies on the utility of these devices in retinal diseases and glaucoma. A background in engineering or computer science is helpful but not required.
This is a one-year, full-time commitment starting in July and ending in June every year. A yearly stipend is offered.
