The Department of
Ophthalmology at Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics offers an
AAPOS-approved Pediatric Ophthalmology Fellowship Program.
The mission of the training program is to develop well-trained
pediatric ophthalmologists capable of providing exceptional eye
care to children and adults with strabismus.
The Role of Teaching
In order to reach this
goal, the fellow is considered both a colleague and a student.
Teaching plays a vital role in the program. The fellowship program
creates and maintains an environment in which the pediatric
ophthalmology fellow receives the highest quality of teaching.
teaching is evidence based and the fellow is given graduated
responsibility for patient care. While teaching and learning
translate to excellence in patient care, the highest priority of
the fellowship is educational and not service.
