Fellowship Program

NIIOS Academy offers a Cornea Fellowship Program for ophthalmologists who wish to further specialize in corneal surgery. Our fellowships are an outstanding educational opportunity. As a fellow at the world’s leading center of expertise in corneal surgery, you will work closely with an enthusiastic team of corneal specialists, medical biologists and researchers.

As a fellow, you will participate in every aspect of NIIOS’s innovative work:

  • Clinical work at Melles Cornea Clinic Rotterdam will provide you with basic training in advanced procedures for corneal transplantation.
  • Clinical and laboratory-based research activities at NIIOS R&D will acquaint you with the state of the art in corneal research.
  • Laboratory work at Amnitrans EyeBank Rotterdam will provide you with basic training in the surgical preparation and preservation of donor corneal tissue to be used in advanced transplantation procedures.
  • In our NIIOS Academy program you will educate general ophthalmologists and corneal specialists from throughout the world, on the latest developments in advanced lamellar keratoplasty.

A Cornea Fellowship Program lasts at least six months, with the option to extend the fellowship to twelve months.
