A Fellowship Unlike Any Other
What would a refractive surgery fellowship program look like if the goal was to produce the highest skilled refractive surgeons in the world, and position them to lead the field for the next generation?
This is the question posed to a committee of highly experienced refractive surgeons in the Refractive Surgery Alliance (RSA). Their answer was to create a multi-site, comprehensive fellowship that not only produced excellent surgeons but also prepared them to grow a successful practice. In short, to “build a program to optimize training – regardless of cost.”
The result is the Refractive Surgery Alliance (RSA) Fellowship Network – a completely new training experience that offers a standardized curriculum, extensive training in all aspects of patient management, surgery, business, research and technology, and exposes participants to a broad range of development that goes beyond the usual fellowship experience.
The RSA Fellowship Network combines the resources of several RSA Fellowship programs to create a unique training experience that is both highly individualized and highly practical. It is a values-based program that respects the Fellows’ achievements while it invests in their future success. For Fellows, it is not just a stepping stone to a new career; rather, it is the launch of a new career.
A Fellowship with Options
The RSA Fellowship program provides a “Two-Option” program for the participant – “Fellow” or “Associate” options. The “Fellow” option consists of a one-year, traditional fellowship format followed by an optional second year – the “Associate” year – working as an Associate in a host practice.
Participation in the RSA Fellowship Program is limited to highly qualified, entrepreneurial ophthalmologists who employ a values-based approach to their work with passion and positive energy and who want to lead the next generation of growth in refractive surgery.
