Creating the Future…Today
The RSA Fellowship Program provides real-world practice experience with exceptional salaries and benefits commensurate (or better) with other ophthalmologists at the same level. As a “Two-Option” Fellowship Program, the salary model for either option – “Fellow” (year one option) or “Associate” (two year option) – are thoughtful and competitive. Importantly, salary and benefits with the “Associate” option, provides the opportunity to significantly increase your income with production.
Opportunities exist to create a new practice for exceptional RSA Fellows post-Fellowship position with alternatives for those who wish to enter practice outside the RSA Network. Applicants to the RSA Fellowship Program should come prepared to discuss their practice aspirations and preferences.
The RSA Fellowship Network is limited to ophthalmologists showing superior skills and promise. We reserve the right to leave positions unfilled in the event that enough qualified candidates are not identified.
