The Vold Vision Anterior Segment Fellowship
The Vold Vision eye institute has a year-long clinical fellowship in anterior segment. Our fellow works closely with Dr. Vold and Dr. Voicu who are both anterior segment surgeons. Surgical experience includes the full range of glaucoma, cataract, cornea and refractive procedures. Clinical experience is broad, including treatment of ocular surface disease, cornea and glaucoma. Emphasis is placed on the treatment of complex cases in an innovative clinical and research environment.
Our fellow has the opportunity to participate in clinical research with optional dedicated time for research, and will be supported to present at national meetings. International surgical volunteer opportunities will be optional with support for travel, for those interested in learning to develop such programs abroad. An introduction to running an efficient, research-focused private practice will be part of the learning process. The emphasis of our fellowship is to tailor to the fellow's ideal clinical and surgical experience in a positive and enjoyable environment, with great support staff. Applications are accepted on a yearly basis through the San Francisco Matching Program at SFmatch.org.
Meet our Current Fellow
Dr. Joshua Frenkel, MD, MPH completed his ophthalmology at the prestigious Tulane University Eye Center. He also completed his medical school and medical internship at Tulane. He has trained with some of the most advanced techniques in cataract surgery and has joined the Vold Vision family for an additional year of training in glaucoma, cornea, cataract and refractive care. We could not be prouder or more excited to have him with us and look forward to his outstanding contributions to the field of ophthalmology.
